    made it it turned out great loved it.
    but one word of cution unless you have a wide dish i would cut down the cheese by half a cup.
    i made it in a microwave safe dish that i think would only be a little more narow then the one in the pic. say an inch tops.
    this cused the cheese layer to be far to thick and took for ever to melt when it finally did the other layers were far to hot. but as it cooled the cheese layer solidified.
    it seamed i could not get it to a point where the cheese layer was soft and the other layers were not burn your toung hot.
    and do to thickness when the cheese was hard it broke every chip easily.

    so you might want to use a little less cheese.

    but it was still great
