    This dish is very easy to make! It's one of my daughter's favorites. She's a picky eater but this gets raves every time I make it.

    Love it! So easy to make. I added sliced black olives and guacamole dip before sprinkling with cheddar cheese and it was a hit at my Christmas party!

    Simple to fix. I didn't even microwave it. I also sprinkled a little cilantro on top for extra flavor.
