"Great recipe! I use ground beef instead of steak so it's faster to make and it's also more like a nacho dip. I just brown the beef with the onion and garlic and then add the salsa, salt, and chili powder and heat through."

"The flavor was good but it was very watery. There really wasn't any sauce coating the meet or vegetables when I made it. I think this is because I bought fresh salsa in a tub anbd not jar salsa and it had a lot of water in it."
