Each time I fix this, my boys want more. It's like they are addicted and can't get enough. This is the first to go at major events as well. Hope you will enjoy. AND IT'S SO EASY TOO!

Hi LinMarie! This is a winner! Easy to prepare and so tasty. I used the cayenne pepper and grated Gruyere cheese. Can't wait to make it again. Thank you so much for sharing.
