Actually got this recipe from Quick Cooking. It did not call for the Mexican type cheese or the wine. Found they both spruced it up a bit. Original recipe also called for using package bacon and canned mushrooms. We happen to like fresh. In a hurry, try the canned mushrooms and precooked store bacon.
