“This is a very mild dish. For adult taste, it really needs to be perked up with cayenne pepper or Tabasco chipotle sauce. As written, it's how my Mom made it. However, it seemed too thick to me. I'm not sure she didn't use Velveeta. I used Kraft 2% sharp cheddar, and the texture was not what I hoped.”
