Cream cheese can also be used in place of the sour cream, but this would change the nutritional info. Shredded cheddar can also be mixed in, but of course this would also change the nutritional info.

    Add A LOT of salt & pepper! Next time I'll try something other than the sour cream. - 8/7/11

    Very Good
    This recipe is very similar to what you find at some restaurants. It's really good esp. ifyou like garlic! LOL!! It seemed a little tasteless tho. Added onion powder, chives and some shredded colby/monterrey jack cheese as well. Thanks for sharing! I will definitely make it again!! - 3/28/10
