“Funny story behind this one. Years ago, as a new bride, we spent about a week at my new in-laws' home. MIL and FIL were on a "juice" diet. MIL made wonderful meals for DH and I, but my poor FIL would watch us eat--I felt so sorry for him!--while he was stuck with a glass of some horrible-looking (to me) veggie juice concoction. Finally I told DH I couldn't take it anymore! So we went out to eat that night. One of the entrees on the menu was this very interesting selection. We loved it, and started making our own at home, too. Whenever we make these, we fondly remember DH's dad as we go tripping down Memory Lane, remembering those first months of our marriage. See my Perfectly Seasoned Taco Meat for the meat called for below. This is written for ONE SERVING.”

  3. Pop this into the microwave and cook until cheese begins to melt and bubble up (1 minute on High)--watch carefully.
