    The only thing I would do different when I prepare the recipe is to saute the onion before combining with other ingredients. The one half hour of baking did not cook the onions and they were crunchy. My husband was not happy. :( I tried to rate it 3 stars but the thing wouldn't work! - 1/20/12

  • Very Good and quick to make. I used stone-ground corn tortillas &tore them up to create a layer on the bottom. The salsa adds a kick to the recipe - like it hot - use the hot salsa. With mild salsa and the corn tortillas it was the perfect blend of flavors. - 1/5/10
