  • Spoon te salsa over and around the cheese.
  • Bake until heated through, 10-15 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with the cilantro and serve as a dip or a spread with tortilla chips or other crisps*Note: if the salsa is very chunky, you may want to strain it or chop it in a food processor so the pieces won't fall off the chips.
  • Also, really good if the chips are heated!
