The best part about this recipe, besides the melted cheesy goodness, is that it's a cinch to prepare because everything gets mixed in a large bowl together, then poured into a baking dish. Also, it can be adjusted for desired heat level, from mild to spicy, depending on what type of salsa you prefer.
