READY IN: 33mins
Recipe by 1stimeMom

This recipe has been passed down from my best friend's mom Barb Guesman. It is super easy with only 5 ingredients and practically no prep time - it's perfect for throwing together for an unexpected guest or a quick snack! We love it for football games, holiday parties or any get together. I have eaten MANY pans of this for dinner... by myself I am sorry to say! You can prep this at home and bring it with you... travels well. And it has NO BEANS! Enjoy!

This is so funny to see this recipe here. I'm the Mom who gave the recipe to 1stimeMom and sooooooooooo many others. I got the recipe from Barb back in the early 80's. Everyone loves this recipe. Try it--you won't be disappointed.
