I love this dish. I have made it vegetarian for my daughter by using veggie boulion and no meat at all, with all the beans and cheese you still have protein. I do not use fat free cheese but I used low fat cheese and I don't think I put the whole two cups on it either. Num num

I made a couple of changes - first I used a low sodium chicken broth instead of bouillon for health reasons. Second I was out of ro-tel and I had no cans of green chilis to make my own so I used a can of fire roasted tomatos. We enjoyed the dish very much but the one thing I would change is the cheese. Next time I will use fat free American cheese because it melts better than the fat free cheddar.
