    Mmmm Tasty!

    S. Schroder from WAYZATA, MN

    I didn't have the cheddar cheese soup, so I replaced it with a cup of shredded marble jack cheese. The sour cream and avocado toppings are a must. I also added a little chopped poblano pepper. Really tasty.

    Easy

    Christina Chafin from vine grove

    This recipe was very easy. I was able to make this and the Tortilla Soup for 2 nights dinners and it only took 20 minutes. My kids loved this dish. They don't normally eat the bell peppers, but they loved them in this dish.
