Simple works every time. No hidden ingredients or surprise guests. Just good basic ingredients. The sour cream pulls all of these ingredients close together. That and the crunchy topping makes this one an instant winner. I added some chopped pecans to the topping and I made a smaller version just for the 2 of us. Not overly cheesy with a rich sauce. I used Fat Free Sour Cream and the cheese was sharp enough to add some extra taste. Reduced fat without any compromise to the recipe. Greek Yogurt would be another fat breaker.Taste of Home Volunteer Field Editor

We really enjoyed this! Some changes I made: I cut the recipe in half for the 2 of us; I used Colby Jack since it was what I already had; I omitted the chilies because my stomach can't take spicy food; I used seasoned bread crumbs instead of stuffing. Still tasted wonderful! I'm not a fan of broccoli but I ate all of this. One note: in the future I will cut up and boil the veggies beforehand, to cut down prep time.

If I could give this a 10, I would! I made a few wee changes for personal taste, however. I do not put in canned green chilies--never, ever liked their flavor. I do add 1 tsp. lemon pepper and for extra pizzazz, I add 1/4 tsp. cayenne. But these are just personal additions--you can make the dish as it's written. It's creamy, comforting, and flavorful. Oh, and good for you as well!

*I accidentally used seasoned bread crumbs instead of stuffing, and crushed some salt & pepper flavored potato chips for 1/4 cup of the topping.*This recipe was absolutely delicious! My husband got 2 or 3 helpings and he doesn't even usually like cauliflower. The chilies make all the difference I think. This is a keeper!

A good casserole.... I did add crushed pecans to the casserole and topping. Also, a small onion carmelized, and one red pepper and about 1 tsp garlic powder.... awesome!!
