My children like this recipe, because I don't make it with the green chilies or hot peppers. This recipe is for those of us who don't like things so spicy. I hope you like it.

My family really liked this dish..I only used 3 cups of milk or else it would have been way too runny..but that may have been because I used a 'lite' butter and trim milk..it was still deliciously saucy and got rave reviews from all. Thanks for sharing.
