I did not like this as much as my bf. We omitted the onions because I don't care for them. I omitted the garlic salt because I sauteed fresh spinach in garlic and olive oil. I thought the sour cream was a little overpowering. Next time (which my bf informed me there needs to be) I will half the sour cream and up the milk and cream cheese. Definitely a good base recipe that I will adjust for my tastes. Thanks!!
