"Tasty, but really heavy. We ate them as a dinner. Would definitely just eat one slice as an appetizer next time."

"This recipe was DEILICIOUS!!! I love how festive it is for halloween and the whole family loved them! I could eat this everyday. The only thing I did different was cook the shredded cheese in with the chicken filled."

"Absolutely delicious! The sweetness from the barbecue sauce and corn was a nice balance to the spiciness of the salsa and smokiness of the cumin. This would be fun to serve for October football viewing! Pair it with a microbrew and you have a winner! Forget the 7 Layer Bean Dip!"
