What's for Dinner Tonight

I tried a recipe I found online for dinner.....it was a HIT!! This is what is left after 6 kids went nuts on the pan



I did make a couple changes such as I added a can of Campbell's Cheddar Cheese Soup, I did not use instant rice....I cooked it fair and square only because in my house (of 11) I buy rice in bulk bags. I used a whole stick of butter, 4 small green onions, and I did not use process cheese....I used the real deal...mixed a couple handfulls of shredded cheese in cooked it at 425 degrees for about 15 mins and then topped with a couple more handfuls and baked for another 15 or so. The one thing I did not add that I think would make it more yummy would be garlic.

OK so now I realize that I made more than 1 or 2 changes...but I am a "Dump" cook...you know the kind. I Dump whatever looks good in a pot and prays it comes out yummy....and it usually does.
