Recipe Comments & Reviews

I made this on a cold Sunday afternoon and it turned out creamy and yummy! I had to use both frozen and fresh veggies as I did not have enough of the frozen but I dont' think it matters. I thought it called for too much salt but it turned out perfect. I used crushed frito's inplace of the bread crumbs to save time, and everyone loved it! No left overs even..
