This is one of our very favorite dinners in our house. I like to add a bit more salsa (about a half a jar more) so it's not quite as dry, but it's a meal we make over and over!

I made this for dinner last night and it was absolutely DELICIOUS! The fresh jalapenos really added an extra element. The green sauce I used was a tomatillo salsa which already had onions in it, so if I use the same salsa next time, I won't need the extra chopped cup of onion.

My husband and I usually put some kind of hot sauce (Sriracha for him, Cholula for me) on everything and this didn't even need it! We only baked ours for 20 minutes and that ended up being perfect. This is a new staple in our house, and SO easy!
