The cooking time was far to long. Try 40minutes. Ten minutes before end of cooking, I sprinkled a thin extra level of cheese. Also I put in pitted black olives, and used red pepper instead of the recipe suggestion. Made for a football viewing T.V supper. Easy and tasty. My husband loved it!

So simple & quick and very tasty. My parents don't like spicy food ("it doesn't agree with me") so used a jar of Karyatis roasted red peppers instead of the jalapeños.
