      I used green pepper only, Cheez-Whiz for cheese and I left out the hot pepper sauce - thought it might be too spicey for my taste. I really enjoy this recipe - I've made it several times and intend to make it many more times. Thanks for posting this recipe.

      I amended this one slightly by using deli sliced roast beef in place of the steak. I used only green peppers and added sliced mushrooms over and above the rest of the ingredients. I began with the vegetables and added the beef after (it was julienned from the slices so it only needed too be warmed up). Things were looking so good, I forgot the seasonings but since I had provolone cheese, it didn't really seem to matter. Thanks keen5, you helped us find a great one!
