"This was pretty bland. I even added some cayenne pepper to give it a kick. I won't be making this one again. No one ate the leftovers."

"My husband made this and it turned out great, he did change a view things and added sausage to it, but it was very good. We all enjoyed it and will be having this again. Leftovers were great as well."

"Oops! Didn't catch that there is an ingredient listed as process cheese sauce! Never heard of that or saw it on a shelf. Going to look for it so I can make this recipe!!"

"I haven't made this yet, but I think it looks very good! For the person wondering about process cheese: it is simply Velveeta that comes in box (not canned?? cheese). I will review this once I actually make it."
