Easy Mexican Dip

Ok everyone, if you gave me this recipe please fess up!  I don't know where it came from, I found it scribbled onto a piece of paper, shoved into a purse that I dug out of my closet from last year, but I am so glad I found it! This dip is EASY, TASTY, VERSATILE and SIMPLE!  Change the cheese and type of salsa to suit your taste. A great dish to take to get togethers, but if there is a large crowd I suggest making double it goes fast!
