I found this recipe at www.pillsbury.com and it's fantastic! Couple little things I did differently. I added the one cup of shredded Cheddar cheese, but I also added an additional cup of Kraft Mexican blend cheese. I also served it with a dollop of sour cream on top. Turned out great. It's a very quick and easy meal to get you and your little goblins out the door this Halloween.
This heats up well for leftovers too!
