We barely noticed the difference in this lightened-up version of our favorite dish. We tried it with friends and loved it. —Sonya Labbe, West Hollywood, California

"made this as a side dish, and was really really good. Pretty easy to do, my only problem was not breaking the potatoes. I used marble cheese instead of Monterrey jack and cheddar and got told to make it again!!!"

"what does step #2 mean, saying, "Scoop out the pulp, leaving thin shells. Remove 1/3 cup pulp" ? Confusing. They sound delicious and I wanted to try this version. Wish I could rate it higher, but not having tried the recipe, I can't yet."
