"Keeper!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 9, 2014

"This is delicious. I am a meat eater but you don't even miss it in this dish, though it is good with some chicken added in if you are so inclined. We have made this several times and even the kids love it."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 27, 2013

"The taste of this is going to come from the salsa you use. Make sure you use your favorite and not just what's the cheapest. We like Newman's own farmer's garden. Cause of that this dish was amazeballs!"
