What salsa do you recommend?

There are hundreds of different types of salsa. Everything from green (tomatillo) to red (traditional) salsa. This ingredient is really up to you. Depending on how spicy you want your dish and want flavor profile you want to add. Since you are already including diced tomatoes we would recommend using a salsa that is not too chunky. A great salsa is one that has a slightly smoky flavor from the charred or grilled peppers. It will turn your dinner into a whole new experience.

Can you give me some recommendations on toppings?

Just with regular tacos or nachos, the possibilities are endless. Make a fun dinner night and set out tiny bowls of a bunch of toppings for all your friends and family to choose from. Extra cheese is definitely a great one since cheese is only melted on top of the Lasagna. Topping with fresh or canned jalapenos for a boost of spicy and earthy taste.

Love black olives? They work surprisingly well too! Helping to cut down on the heat from the other ingredients. A crowd favorite would be sour cream because it helps cool down the heat, especially for someone who can’t tolerate too much heat.
