MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 15, 2014

"Whole family loved it. The taste probably has a lot to do with the quality of the salsa used."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 31, 2014

"I'm not sure where all the 5 star reviews came from. I didn't find this recipe very appealing. It wasn't bad, but it didn't provide a wow factor either. I won't be making this again."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 16, 2014

"This was very good tasting. I could see using this for Panini's or like Cuban sandwiches"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 5, 2014

"Especially enjoyed the change of pace with the salsa verde. Apricots didn't over-sweeten it as I was afraid."

MY REVIEW
