Super yummy and easy recipe ! I used a can of campbell's fiesta cheese soup instead of the velveeta. Did not have any jalepenos so added some sriracha ( and wished I had added a can of chopped green chilis I found in my cabinet when I was done cooking - LOL) .<br/><br/>My 7 year old loved it and is taking some in his thermos for lunch tomorrow :-)
