Used microwave per recipe, drained RoTel slightly, added chopped scallions, a little (dried ground) chipotle pepper, and about 1/4 cup frozen "roasted" corn kernels (see Trader Joe's). Only problem? We ran out of chips! ;-)

We double this recipe and put it in the crock pot for parties. Always a hit!

I too found the recipe very watery. So the next time I made it I drained the tomatoes and let them sit in a strainer for an hour to thoroughly drain. I made a bechemal using a rue and melted the cheese. I added the tomatoes at the last 2 to 3 minutes. For a kick you can add pickled Jalapenos as well to give it more flavor.
