"Delicious. I substituted 1/2 cup sour cream + 1/4 cup cream cheese for the mayo and sprinkled paprika on them when they came out of oven."

"I have made this for several parties and my all my friends LOVE it! Several have even requested I bring it the next time too. The picture suggests they used Frito Scoops but I have always used the Tostito Scoops. I will note that these do not reheat well, however we rarely have leftovers!"
