I took this one off Kraft recipes, but have made some changes also. My son and granddaughter love it. It can be made with more spice by just changing what salsa you use.

    TIPS I didn't have any saltines the first time so I used about a 1/2 cup quick oatmeal. I didn't have enough Mexican cheese so I used what ever I had. I used at different times, all mild salsa, about 1/2 & 1/2 of mild and medium, and all medium. I liked the 1/2 & 1/2 the best. It took longer in my oven than the recipe calls for, but in a friends oven it came out perfect in 25 min, plus the 3 extra.
