I didn't have all the ingredients I wanted so I improvised. I used this basic recipe with the following changes and both my husband and I loved this. We are definitely going to make it again.
Changed 1/4 c. onions to 1/2 c.
Used fat free milk.
Used light mayo.
Didn't have any mushrooms so I didn't use them. Would have if I had them.
Added 1/4 t. cayenne.
Added 3/4 SMALL can of green chiles
Used whole wheat bread crumbs and sauteed them quickly in 1 T. of Smart Balance Heart Healthy Light spread.
Loved the recipe and thanks for sharing it. Also, if I had had some frozen peas or green pepper I would have added one of them. I was just out of a lot of things.
