MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 22, 2011

"This recipe IS good, and certainly comfort food, but kind of bland (with all of the condensed soup & sour cream), so I had to add hot sauce to mine. Also didn't see the point in refrigerating overnite (guess so flavors could "marry?) so just baked it that same nite"
