Well, now I know why this has so many high ratings-it's delicious. I did cut way back on the salt but otherwise followed the recipe. We enjoyed it immensely w/ Mixed Green Chowder Mixed Greens Chowder.
This was wonderful, we couldn't stop eating it. I was thinking of adding a can of Rotel tomatoes the next time I make it. I am going to add more cheese too. Thanks Nurse Di for another fabulous recipe.
