“This light and flavorful recipe was created for RSC#11. The vegetables with the melted gouda make for a light appetizer or snack. These are wonderful eaten plain or with salsa. Special Note: Make sure you use enough cheese and melt it around the nuts and beans so they don't fall out, toppings let you control how much zip it has :)”
