We make this all the time. The kids love it with sour cream, salsa and scoop it with chips. My friend's family puts balsamic vinegar on the plate and then dish this food ontop and love it--personally, hahven't tried that version. Love the chips one, tho!

Jen sent me this recipe when we were (were?) going through a difficult financial period. It's cheap, super easy and still sooo yummy! I think I'll try kacey's ideas, too!
