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!
