Notes

I've been making this since I was 10. It's great as a meal or can be used as a 10+ layer dip.

Note: not for the diet conscious. I also prefer to cook so there are less clean up, ie. I try to use one pan-even if it takes a little longer to do so. I despise doing dishes and I don't have a dishwasher--sigh.
