    Recipe Introduction

    Believe it or not, it is just as fast to make this from scratch as it would be if you used one of those packaged "helper" products. I know because I tried it. An added advantage in making a dish from scratch is your knowledge that everything in it is fresh and of course much lower in sodium than a packaged product. This is one of those basic recipes that you can play around with and change to suit your own taste buds. You can't go wrong if you just remember to keep track of the card values.
    Makes 4 servings
