Found this on pinterest and I will be making this as it sounds wonderful! You can make it with meat or without. I like the choice and she lowered the calories by using reduced fat sour cream and cream cheese! Thats a plus in my book! Thought I would share it with you all as well! Thank you Nicole Moss for creating this beautiful dish!
