    So delicious and easy to make. I didn’t have fresh green chilies to make the salsa, so I just used organic canned chilies.

    Am I tired, or is the green chile part missing from the ingredient list? How much green chile sauce should we use? Thx!

    Delicious! This came together quickly and was very satisfying. Adding the red onion & avocado to top it off was a nice touch as well. Thank you Kevin!
