*****Can be made ahead and frozen. You can add 2 c. of cooked rice (can be brown, yellow or flavored rice) to the mixture. You can also change up cheese selections. Try different things to change it up.
This is my mother-in-law, Ruth “Teacup” Wilbert Morrow’s recipe. When she started this, she used the rolls of garlic cheese. Sadly, they don’t make that cheese anymore. Loved that roll of garlic and also the jalapeno roll of cheese. Wish they would bring them back.
