I made this recipe using squeezable sour cream thanks to Daisy and Influenster. It was super easy to make and turned out so yummy! We added extra cheese because there is no such thing as too much cheese! Prep was quick and easy and even the kids could help. Cook time was enough and very accurate. We will definitely be making this again in our household!

I made this recipe using daisy squeezable sour cream that I was able to test for free from influenster. The recipe was super easy to follow and I had all of the ingredients on hand so that made things even better! Popped it in the oven and we ate it shortly after it came out. Sooooo yummy and even my picky eaters enjoyed it! We will definitely make it again

It was easy to make. I didn't have whipping cream though so I used whole milk. I loved how cheesy it was. Thank you Influenster and Daisy for the Sour Cream and the new dinner!

I just tried this recipe tonight. My whole family loved it! I left out the tomatoes but it was still delicious. I received my Daisy sour cream for free for testing purposes. I wasn't disappointed!

I had to try this recipe out. It looks super simple and it was. I even had my daughter help me because she loves to cook. It came out super cheesy and the sour cream just finished it off so well. I received the daisy sour cream free to try in the squeeze pouch. Which was easier and cleaner and fun for my kids to use. All opinions are my own.

I have made this my go to recipe when over night guests are coming. I can make it ahead, and not have to worry about what time folks will arrive. Left overs freeze well, the flavors blend even better.
