I saw this recipe on Semi-homemade with Sandra Lee and thought it would be perfect to post here. A real kid-pleaser (and adult-pleaser too!)

Made it for a football party.. Men, women and kids LOVED it! I used a mexican mix shredded chez in lieu of, but it turned out great! I will make this again, very easy and not one 'dog' was left!
