      We really enjoyed this cauliflower dish with tonight's dinner. Cauliflower is my favorite veggie and I love this take on it. The only change I made was to use half & half vs. milk and canned mild green chilies. I also used fresh sourdough bread crumbs tossed with a little melted butter for the topping. DH loved this dish and went back for more. Will definitely make this delicious dish again very soon. Made for Make My Recipe Reunion tag, December, 2012.

      Yummy! This has just the right amount of 'zing' for my kids to eat. Different take on an old favourite. Thanks.

      We made this recipe last night as a side to Chicken in Creamy Chipotle Sauce. We really enjoyed it! It is the first time I have made cauliflower with cheese sauce (usually I roast it with rosemary and garlic) and I have to say that it was great! I will definitely make this recipe again. We followed all instructions and ingredients as posted. Thanks! Made for ZWT5.
