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!
