MAN this was good. I had to stop myself from eating an entire serving while it was still on the stove. I did modify a little by adding some chopped green onions and fresh jalapenos, and used a dollop of greek yoghurt instead of sour cream. Yummy!

Made this late last night. It was awesome! I skipped the oil and first 2 steps. Just put everything in a pot and heated through. The sour cream and cilantro are what makes it. We'll be having this again and again!
