    Very good, added some hot sauce after as family didn’t want jalapeños. Will make again.

    Super easy, relatively quick. Great flavor, with a little kick. The tortilla strips were a fresh addition (tasted like they were from scratch).

    I added a bit of cumin and chipotle chili powder. It had great flavor but was a little too “thin”.

    Love this! It's in my recipe rotation, and I make it every couple months. The recipe is great as is. Super flavorful and relatively easy to make. I usually skip the tortilla chips and cheese and it still tastes great.
