    Papagayita's Note:

    While traveling around the world I discovered that "Laughing Cow" cheese is the perfect substitute for Velveeta/American cheese! slight departure from the standard queso with the addition of yogurt, onions, and fresh tomatoes...makes a thicker, slightly more nutritious recipe!
