This was an interesting recipe. My husband and I both liked it. I assumed that "cheese crackers" meant cheese-its or cheese nips, but I think I was wrong. The reason being that I had to use way more than 30 crackers. Probably more like 90. I used about half the box. It was good, however, we both think it would be better as a dip. It would be awesome used as a dip, not so much as a main course. We both tried using tortillas to dip it, and it was great that way. Thanks for posting. This was made for "Name that Ingredient Tag Game- Fall 2013"
