5. Add 2 cups of very tiny, almost food processor chopped broccoli florets and stems, 1 cup of finely chopped red sweet peppers and 1 to 1-1/2 cups of blended cottage cheese (like a thick sour cream substance).

6. Add 1/2 to 1 pound of cooked and crumbled bacon, 1 cup of finely chopped onion, 1-1/2 cups of grated sharp cheddar cheese.

Dust the cubes in a plastic bag with your favoirte packet of taco seasoning and at the last minute, just before pouring into the pan, add the cubes carefully and don't mix too much if at all.
