This was fairly quick and easy, and good spicy flavor!! Like many others, I used salsa verde instead of canned tomatillos, and so I think that upped the spice level considerable (I did not use jalapeno jack cheese). I made the full recipe and found that it easily serves 6--4 servings would have been way too filling. One other note--when I make again, I will only make enough for us to eat that day, as I'm finding the leftovers to be a big soggy and lackluster.
