MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 28, 2014

"My wife and I like this recipe, I followed it to the letter. It says to put in ungreased pan, I won't do that again, it stuck to the dish and it was hard getting it out in one piece. We didn't think it was bland. I wouldn't omit or add anything to this recipe."

"These are REALLY easy and REALLY good to make! I do add some chopped & peeled green chiles too. Also, I don't make the "Sauce" I just use a 16oz jar of El Paso Chunky salsa (makes this even quicker)."
