This recipe was emailed to me, but I’ve made a few changes here and there. My husband and I both love this, and I hope you do, too!

I was so pleased with the way this recipe turned out. I was looking for something quick and easy but somewhat authentic without velveeta or canned soup. I came across this one and followed it exactly except for omitting the onion out of laziness. It was well received by everyone and so easy to put together. I will be making this again! Thanks for sharing.
