I had a feeling it would be really bland so I added two chilie's and used a stronger cheese and opted to add fresh corn. It was terribly bland. A West Indian hot sauce salvaged it a bit, but it was too much work for such a weak tasting meal. I am now dreading finishing the remaining servings for lunch the next few days as the family refuses to finish it.
