The ingredients list seems long, but super easy to make. Used Frontera Tomatillo Salsa. You can also sub cornstarch for the masa, although you don't get that nice corny flavor. :) - SE Editor Alyssa

I triple the recipe and have been making it for parties and potlucks for at least 5 years. It always gets raves! I will be making it again for this year's Halloween Party.
