this is one of my favorite things to make for my husband. He never refuses this as a dinner or lunch. It is also easily doubled. It can be done on the bbq as well....all steps!! If you like hot...pepper jack cheese,sliced jalepeno pepper...or just change your heat on spices like a touch of cayenne and hotter salsa...hope you enjoy!!!!
