Very tasty once I added 1/2 c salsa, subtracted 1/2 c milk (to compensating for additional liquid in the salsa), doubled the cumin, and added 1/4 tsp cayenne. I made these changes because the original recipe appeared to lack a little in seasoning. Next time, I also plan to sprinkle the top with shredded Monterey Jack before baking.
