"I made this tonight and it's delicious! I used Chipotle flavor sour cream and that gave it a nice kick. I'm sure it's great with regular sour cream too. It makes a lot so I'm giving some to my daughter and her family."

"My kids and I hated this recipe. The texture was off not creamy. I think it had a lot to do with the shredded cheddar cheese."
