      The whole family, myself included LOVED this!!! The filling was rich and creamy. Had a very mild flavor which makes if kid-friendly. The onions and green chiles are the perfect touch. My 4-year old who is going through a very picky stage gobbled this up. Thanks Nurse Di.

      This recipe was amazing! I made this recipe for a cinco de mayo pool party and they were a complete hit. I doubled the recipe to make enough for 2 trays. These went so fast that I only got to eat 1!!! They were a real hit. I would say that since I doubled the recipe I tried to make sure that the soup sauce with the picante sauce was not too hot. I just put in 1 cup of the hot sauce instead of 2. I would advise other people to make sure to taste the soup sauce as you are putting the picante sauce in so that you dont make it too hot. Loved this recipe. Will make this one again soon.
