"Delicious, quick and easy! I served these with salsa, guacamole, sour cream and Mexican Rice on the side. It made a nice, light dinner."

"This is so good and so easy. There is a lot in the filling so the second time I made it I cut down on the cheese. BTW, I used reduced fat sharp cheddar. A little salsa as a topping - it's great!"
