MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 22, 2013

"My family really enjoyed this with a roasted chicken. I made this despite not having green beans or fresh tomatoes, I used canned tomatoes. Next time I think I'll use pepper jack cheese and mexican spiced canned tomatoes. The recipe is easily adapted for personal taste."

"This was a good dish and we din't even add the 1/2 teaspoon of salt because of a low sodium diet. Thanks for the recipe Betty! Will be making this again!"
