Very tasty, and easy to make, too! I can't wait to try experimenting with different toppings.

These were so easy to put together and mighty tasty I might add. Served them with sour cream and would have also topped them with more sauce, but I used it all in the recipe.:)

I thought that these were great. We topped ours with sour cream and/or chili con queso. They were very easy to put together too. Thanks!
