Added shredded cheese and salsa. Would have been pretty bland without those. I don't know why these recipes keep calling for yogurt. Clearly this requires sour cream.

I really liked this. We used sour cream instead of yogurt, added some cheese. Made for a lovely breakfast.

These mushrooms were so good. I could've eaten bowls of just those.
