Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This dish is perfectly creamy (thanks to the soups) and the salsa gives it a very nice zip. We used a Mexican cheese blend and a medium heat salsa... and were so pleased with the results.

It's worth noting that cooking for an hour does cause quite a bit of browning. This made the cheese taste wonderful, but did affect the dish's presentation. We made it again for the picture and that time added the cheese when there was only 15 minutes of bake-time left. Worked wonderfully!
