I made this the other night, but made lots of alterations to it. First I didn't have any chicken on hand, so I used ground beef instead. Second, I used a can of Rotel for added flavor. And third, since I've been a little unsure of the Cooking Creme, I used 10 ounces of Breakstone's Sour Cream Southwest Style Dip. It was really delicious and my picky hubby went back for seconds before I could even finish "firsts." If you can't find the Southwest Style Sour Cream dip (which I believe is new), you could also use regular sour cream or cream cheese and add chili powder, cumin and other spices to taste.


I made this twice, my family loves it. There's usually leftovers but it don't take long before that's gone. I use shredded co jack instead of the Monterey jack.

something new

This was fast and easy. It was mild and reminds me of mexican style mac and cheese. It needs a pick me up like rotel or something to bring on the flavor.
