*I made this recipe for bunco and it was a big hit. It is so easy to make and had a great flavor to it. I put this on top of rice, Hailey really enjoyed this too. I used mild salsa and it gave good flavor and not spicy at all. I am sure if you used a med or hot salsa that would give it more spice.*
I love the 80's
