      This was really good. Love not turning on the oven.Next time I will probably add some garlic but that is personal taste. Also, it was sticking to the bottom of the pan way before the final 20 minute cooking period was up. it didn't seem to suffer from the shorter cooking time.This is going in my permanent cook book. Thanks for a winner, ellie.

      I used low-fat sour cream and substituted low-fat cheddar for half the monterey jack. I didn't stir during the last cooking period and had it stick the pan a bit, but still it tasted great. Served with Jazze22's Wonderful Salsa (Wonderful Salsa), which I canned last summer. Delicious!
