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."

MY REVIEW
