This is a great appetizer dish, I have made it quite often for parties, never had a empty platter with this recipe, I am sure you will love this one. My taco seasoning mix Kittencal's Taco Seasoning Mix works well for this. You can adjust all amounts to taste.

Love this recipe. Very similar to mine. The only real difference is that I don't use as much barbecue sauce. Everyone loves this dish.

5 star plus! We had this as our Sunday appetizer with a Martini - WOW we loved it. I cut the recipe back to 2 servings and used lite cream cheese - It truly was fabulous Thanks Kittnecal my thoughts are there with you.

I made this for a group of (mostly) single guys and you can not imagine how much they liked it! It was devoured. My dh asked me to leave the BBQ sauce off his portion next time, but no other complaints! Thanks for a great recipe.
