  1. Made this as written, and served my southwest spaghetti recipe. If you like cheesy rolls, this is the one to try. Pleased with the outcome. Made for PRMR.
  2. The hardest thing about this recipe is thawing the dough. I used a chunky homemade chili (no beans) already in the freezer instead of canned. Using two rolls was required to form the 5' circle & even then requires stretching. The finished product is well stuffed and oozes cheese. Who doesn't like gooey cheese? Additional ingredients would only be limited by imagination & family preferences. I'd like to try fresh jalapeno or cilantro next time. Thank you for sharing the recipe! Made for Spring 2012 Pick A Chef.
