This isn't the "best" I've tasted but I ate 3 pieces so it was def tasty! My changes: I used canned jalepenos diced inside, I had to cook it way longer in a 9 x 9 and I only had skim milk. Not sure if the milk affected it. It was so moist and cheesy I wasn't sure if it was done-which could be a good thing. I would cut down the cheese a little if using a 9x9. Next time I would use a 9 x 13, cut down the cheese, and try whole milk. I gave 4 stars because the time is incorrect and I think it would've over flowed in an 8 x 8. I would also use a bigger onion next time I couldn't taste it at all. Maybe a med/small? And possibly more salt... this was just a little bland to me. But I will try it again!
