"Okay, (sorry) I changed this up a bit because of what I had on hand, and used heavy whipping cream in place of the evaporated milk and parmesan cheese in place of the crackers. This works better for me, since I eat a low carb/ high fat diet. And let me tell you... OMG... so delicious! I think this recipe could easily be modified according to personal taste/ veggies on hand/ etc. Absolutely delicious, and a keeper. Made it three times within the month."
