“This was a meal that was thrown together and turned out fantastic. It really has that good homemade taste and can be used as a meal or a side dish. ***Please make sure you add or subtract anything you do not like in this reciepe. I use handfuls of shredded cheddar cheese rather than exact measurements because some people prefer to add more or less cheese.***”
