    Very good. I used light cream cheese instead of fat free as the fat free doesn't taste as good. I also tossed in some diced tomatoes. I will make this dish again. - 4/9/10

    This was the first real recipie I've ever actually done completely by myself. And it turned out awesome! I nixed the chilis and doubled the cheese, as we're cheese lovers. Couldn't find reduced fat colby jack, so I used a reduced fat Mexican cheese mix. Fiance and I hate spinach, but loved this! - 4/8/10

    Qick and easy. Can even use leftover chicken or turkey and cook in a microwave til set. I used cottage and leftover ricotta cheese instead of cream cheese and egg. - 2/17/10
