This was fabulously easy and so good! I added a little mozzarella to the top and jalepenos! Topped it off with sour cream! It was so wonderful! There is so much you can do with this dish! Thank you for sharing!!!! <br/>T

Very easy to make and adjust to what you have in the crisper. I added diced cooked sweet potato and covered with cheese before baking. A hit with hubby and the kids.
