"I thought this was just okay, kind of a strange combination of ingredients and tastes. I will probably not make again."

"This was very tasty and easy to make. I used fresh spinach instead of the frozen. Also bought the combination mild cheddar and jack cheese. Hubby and I decided this would make a great appetizer too."
