Today’s recipe comes from one of my favorite cookbooks in my kitchen, Betty Crocker’s Easy Everyday Vegetarian. There are many reasons for my love of this cookbook, good pictures, easy to find ingredients, in fact you may have most them in your kitchen already, the meals are fairly quick to make, and for you non-vegetarians out there it gives suggestions of how it can be converted to non-veg options.

After consulting a friend about this recipe he provided some excellent tweeks using just my discription and well I’m happy I took his suggestions because it just pumped up the flavor. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did…

    I’m assuming the chicken broth goes in with the rest of the ingredients, well that’s what I did. For some reason my cream cheese didn’t really melt, it more or less broke into little chucks, but they may have been because i was using the reduced fat one. i also didn’t have cheese cloth so i ghetto rigged that part. i cut a tea bag open, poured out the tea then used a piece of floss to tie the bag back up. lol! it wasn’t my favorite but it was something different!
