3 stars, good, easy to make, tasty. Lighter, sweeter flavor than typical "Mexican" dishes, not very spicy. I'll use hot Rotel tomatoes next time because we like more heat. Filling needs seasoned with salt & pepper, and next time will mix the 1/2 cup cheese with it off heat to try & bind together the loose filling a bit. There was a bit of liquid in the bottom. The tomato toss enhanced it, but we wanted more so I ended up using up almost the whole pint of tomatoes & adding more cilantro. Next time will just double all toss ingredients except olives.

The lead-in page calls for bottled salsa, which never appears in the recipe. Between this and the cheese, it sounds like the editor took a nap on this one.

half a tablespoon of cheese? That can't be correct.
