Notes and Variations:

When you mix the flour into the melted butter you are making a roux or white sauce.

The original recipe calls for sour cream, but to save a few calories Mittie uses Greek Yogurt instead.

The 4 oz can of Rotel can be found at most stores but if you can’t find it here is a link to get 2 – 10 oz cans on Amazon.
