    This is also really good if you substitute 8oz (1 cup) sour cream for the corn cream and lower the water and oil to 1/3 cups each. Also, instead of measuring out the chips, just use all of 12oz bag, chunks work just as well as chips; also fold in the chips rather than beating them to keep them whole - 2/3/13

    Maybe it isn't healthy or not worth the amount of calories but at what point are you just going to enjoy eating? Great job on throwing caution to the wind. This is a great recipe for entertaining those that don't bother everyone with their calorie counting. - 4/7/10

    Very Good
    I substituted the oil with applesauce and used light sour cream, it was just as yummy, but with a lot less guilt. - 2/25/10
