      This was very good. I used 2 1/2 cups skim milk instead of half and half; added about 1/3 c low fat cream cheese and 1/3 c fat free sour cream to make sauce. Had to thicken the sauce with a little corn starch since it didn't have the fat content. Also omitted Monterey Jack cheese since I did not have any, just used extra cheddar. I also added red pepper, kidney beans, and chicken to make it into a one dish meal. DH liked it too so I will definately make again.

      Very nice recipe! Thank you for posting. We had this for lunch today with a salad and it was great. I did add another 2 peppers (cause we like it spicy in Texas) and I used all fresh vegatables from my garden. Lovely!
