This is very yummy. I followed the recipe as written but I will make a few changes based on my personal taste. This dish is a little too salty so next time I will add a small jar of chopped pimentos to mix things up a bit or maybe even green chilis. I will definately omit the chips topping, the dish is wonderful without it plus who needs the extra fat, Right? Thanks for posting, I will make a again for sure!
