Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have not fixed this yet, but it seems quick, easy and tasty. I have not fixed this yet, but it seems quick, easy and tasty. Perfect for saturday afternoons. I will probably top with (on the side) sour cream, chopped onion and pico de galo.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Drain your rotel I've made this before but was just going to check online for a refresh. This recipe calls for undesired rotel, which should actually be drained. It was so messy this time.
