MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 4, 2014

I made this for my family of 4 and my daughter who thinks she should be a vegetarian though she loves bacon, ham and hot dogs LOVED this. My mom who is not a fan of salsa except on chips really liked it, too. A big hit and a make again item!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 6, 2013

This recipe was very easy, fast, and tasted great. I may use spicier salsa the next time since my husband and I like extra heat.

I'm not a big salsa type, but loved this recipe! Pineapple and salsa is a great combination. This one is a keeper.
