Expert Tips

For a less spicy version of this dish, substitute regular-flavor pasteurized process cheese sauce for the jalapeño flavor.

The regular-flavor cheese sauce is also available in a light version, which saves about 5 grams of fat per serving.

Round out the meal with mixed melon salad from the deli.
