Notes

We love to change up the flavours so here's a few other ideas to try:
>3 tsp. chili powder, 1/2 cup salsa (or more), 3/4 cup spicy Havarti or a tex mex cheese blend.
>2 tsp. garlic or onion powder, 1/2 cup BBQ sauce, 1/2 cup cheez whiz or grated cheddar or smoked cheese
>2 tsp dried basil, 1/2 cup pizza sauce, 1/2 cup grated mozzarella or provolone cheese
