Shredded habanero cheese is great if you want some spice. I found that draining the liquid before adding the cheese is a must. Also not mixing the cheese but just letting it melt into the ingredients makes cleaning the bowl much easier. Read More

It was amazingly good. I was skeptical because I don't do microwave dishes much but decided to follow the recipe because all the reviews were so good. I didn't change a thing and thought it was outstanding super easy and everyone loved it. Would definitely make it again and not make any changes. Read More

Wow! Even my teenagers (who don't like squash) gobbled it up - and it was SO EASY! I made a couple of quick alterations: - sprinkled with powdered chicken bullion for added flavor without adding fat - a couple of pinches of garlic powder for added flavor Read More

A great side dish choice for my husband's Father's Day dinner! Turned out great despite my not having mushrooms. My husband loved the fresh but not overdone taste as I did add a little salt & pepper but not too much as cheddar cheese is usually salty. A dish that will definitely be added as a regular dish in our home Read More

I was a little skeptical about microwaving this dish but things came out pretty tasty. I would still prefer to make this in a skillet. I omitted the onion for taste and my picture was before the cheese actually melted. It did melt nicely though. Will make again when I'm in a time crunch. Read More
