Wonderful meal that is quick and easy to prepare. I was true to the recipe with the exception of the cheese. What I had on hand was shredded cheddar/jack and to make up for the difference in what I was short so I added some shredded sharp cheddar. I didn't top it off with the olives or jalapenos to suit family tastes. If it were me, I'd add them for sure. A little information for the reviewer who thought this ended up soupy for her, it's because the missing cream of mushroom soup is needed for "thickness." The Onion soup and water mix is the problem here. Also, I assume she used a can of diced tomatoes with jalapenos, which are very good, but they also contain more liquid than the Rotel. If this recipe is made as specified, it is far from soupy, but is a perfect casserole dish with lots of flavor, texture and body.

This was a pretty good recipe...I had to improvise since I didn't have cream of mushroom at I used a packet of lipton onion soup and a cup of water. Overall, it ended up a little bit soupy, but the flavor was good. I wasn't sure what "rotel" meant, since that refers to a brand, not an I used diced tomatoes with jalepenos. Also, i used a cheddar jack on top. My husband liked it. It was good, but it won't be on my list of regulars. Probably would make a really nice soup...
