Very tasty and not difficult. I used the same amount of filling for about 1.5 lbs of boneless skinless breasts. That came with three breasts. I didn't have monterey jack so I used american cheese with the cream cheese instead with some diced green chilies in a can. I didn't need the sauce for it, it was plenty flavorful as is!
