    My local grocery store did not sell Velveeta, so I substituted sharp cheddar. Velveeta would have melted more uniformly and had a smoother texture in the rise, but overall it was delicious! Definitely something a little different to do with chicken!

    We really liked this recipe but boy, was it hot! We chose not to give it to our young sons. And we really like spicy foods! We'll definitely make this again and may add green peppers and onions next time. Yummy!
