I have made this recipe several times for my family. It is always eaten all up and no left overs. I don't cut corners on the ingredients. I use Campbell brand for the soups. I substitute real butter for the margarine and I use a bit more cheese. But again i never have any left overs!

Super easy and delicious recipe. I make this all the time
The signature blend of vine-ripened tomatoes, zesty green chilies and savory mixture of spices in Ro*Tel that turns ordinary dishes into a medley of delicious, bold flavors.
