For the most part I really like this recipe. What I don't like is the fact that I need to pre-cook the ingredients-I'm more of a "dump it in the crock pot and go" gal. However, this one is worth the extra skillet I have to clean. You can use pepper-jack, cheddar or swiss cheese. We like swiss cheese the best but it's up to you and your personal taste. If you don't care for oregano use thyme.
