I saw Paula Deen make this on Foodtv for a Halloween show and it looked like so much fun. DS and I did have a blast making it. DS thought it was so great to have a snake for dinner. More fun with food! :) Change the meats & cheeses to whatever tickles your fancy. I mostly "eyeballed" when making this so not sure if I used the exact amounts specified. I didn't need a whole bell pepper so got a couple of strips from the grocery salad bar. Now what to do with the rest of the jar of olives!?!
