Cheese! Cheese! Cheese!
I don't often indulge in cheese. Even though I do so love it. I usually feel that you need a LOT of cheese in order for it to really taste good. I don't usually indulge in that many calories, I usually choose to flavor my food in other ways.
However, one does have to have cheese sometimes, right??
I tasted this before adding the cheese and after and it was delicious with the cheese. It still has a lot of flavor and the cheese brings it out even more!
These were plenty flavorful on their own but I used some of my tomatillo green salsa to put on it. This made it even better! Seriously, this was a fantastic meal! Loved the leftovers the next day too!
