Drinks would probably be margaritas, tequila and beer, iced tea, lemonade or Mexican hot chocolate. There is also a recipe for a virgin margaritas. These are just my guesses! The cheese I googled and got several answers, I have not tried these, but they suggested a mild cheddar or Gouda.

Margielynn, Thank you for offering the expanded version with broth, chicken and salad. But what do you recommend instead of Monterey Jack, which is one of my less favorite cheeses? And what do you tend to serve as alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks?

Thanks, they are yummy! Glad you stopped by! Come back again!

This recipe looks so delicious and the photos are tempting. Indian cooking is mostly on gas stove and although I am not into baking and frying this looks simple.
