  2. How many tomatoes? Looks like you used plum or roma tomatoes by your photos but there are none listed in the ingredients and yet they are referred to in the directions. Would like to try this for our Cinco de Mayo dinner but would like the complete recipe please.

  3. Lisa, you just handed me my Cinco de Mayo menu- thank you! Your queso goes perfectly with all of the Jose Ole products, and looks amazing. You even used my very favorite yogurt. OK, gotta go print my coupon! 🙂
