-I used whole wheat.
-I did not use peas or carrots.
-I used a can of drained corn.
-I used a can of tomatoes with peppers and celery
rather than Ro-Tel.
-I used an Italian blend cheese.
Once cooked, add corn and Ro-tel.
I used a can of tomatoes with peppers and celery.
I just cut up the tomatoes a little more.
