I got this wonderful recipe from a friend who is a paramedic at the local fire station. It's a favourite snack that they munch on in between 911 calls.

Six thumbs up from the family. DS wants the recipe for football game days. Next time I will add salsa instead of taco sauce because we prefer salsa and I am sure it would work. Thanks!

Excellent! Excellent! This just hit the spot this evening while watching football. I made as directed, however adding a lot more additional cheese to the top and also along with the green onions and sliced olives, I added a healthy portion of sour cream to garnish. We loved it and will most definitely serve this again : )
