I first tried these with the ingredients I had on hand, which included salsa that was not thick 'n chunky and extra sharp cheddar instead of colby jack. I wasn't overly impressed with the results, but, I thought they were good enough to be worth another try. When I made these again following the recipe to the letter, I better understood the other reviews. This really is tasty, and easy, and worth making again and again! My husband likes it, too.
