Cook's Notes:

This is a quick meal that doesn't require a lot of time cooking. You can even save your fork and use the chips to eat with.

*Recipe Analysis done for 6 servings, using fat free sour cream, and reduced fat cheese (also cutting cheese amount in half, to 4 cups of cheese). 2 pounds of meat and 12 cups of cheese for 4 people is a lot!
