REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
The reciepe calls for 2 cuos of onions but the direction does not have them included I presume they go in the salsa.. They are
exceptionally the best ever but I use a jar of salsa and include small amount of grated onion in the mixture usually use chopped green onion on top with 1/2 the grated cheese. the white part of the green onion I chop fine for the mixture.
All the recipts leave out the onions in the directions
