"easy to customize for varying tastes. My wife likes mango salsa and doesn't much care for mushrooms or cilantro, so I made hers first. I like it hot, so I stuffed mine with medium salsa, chopped Meadow Mushrooms that I harvested and dried last fall, cilantro, roasted green peppers and drizzled Chalula hot sauce over the top. We both had them our way and loved it!"
