Really good! It's super-creamy without being loaded with calories, and I made it even healthier by using light mayo and replacing the cheddar with a smaller amount of parmesan. I might end up using saltines instead of Ritz crackers next time, and skipping the water chestnuts (they tasted out of place). Thanks for sharing!

Loved it! Added some bacon, and didn't have cheddar so used a mix of blue cheese, parmesean and havarti (sounds odd but it worked). Thanks for posting Grandmals
