"My husband's family has been making this recipe for the past 30 yesars. It is a great, quick meal. Kids love it. Sometimes we do not add sourcream at end but serve on the side for those who don't like tangy sour cream taste. On occasion we have added a can of drained corn or black beans to extend the servings. Great recipe!"
