a little too salty and pretty tasteless

Delicious! Easy for experianced chefs and perfect for parties or movie nights! I, However found them a bit salty, but fixed the problem by making a sour cream dipping sauce with ranch dressing and hot sauce!

I made these with cheddar cheese. I thought they were more trouble than they were worth. I was hoping they would be cheesier. They would be good with some kind of dipping sauce.
