We loved these! They were simple to make and tasted great. I used a smoky bacon which we thought really added a nice flavor to the dish and used a Mexican blend cheese since I always have that on hand. Thanks for sharing, Doug. I know that we'll make this often. Made for For Your Consideration tag.
