"This was a great, easy meal. I added ham and a few pieces of pepperoni, omitted the jalapeno and used pepper jack cheese instead. 'Pretty near excellent', as my husband said."

"This was so good! I used cheese and jalapeno bread from the bakery at our local grocery store and it was amazing! I'm surprised it doesn't have many reviews :-)"
