YUM:), Member crazylilchick13

I made this for dinner tonight and wasn't sure if my family would like it but I had to use up some sourcream so I decided I might as well. And it was great. I didn't take out the Onions or the Bell peppers though.. And I made some white rice to go with it and put some of the sauce over top of it and it was very good. :)
