Karen, I have made this recipe many times now, and shared it with friends. It's delicious! Served with the shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, and sour cream...it's a new family favorite. Thanks! my daughter reminded me not to forget to pass the shredded cheese!
I actually really liked this.
I put some cheddar and guac on the inside.
This was delicious! Definitely a keeper! I would make this over and over again! I made it exactly as described.
