Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, remove from burner. Transfer mixture to prepared casserole dish and top with remaining cheese.

    Finish The Dish

    Bake in hot oven until cheese is melted and dish is heated through, 10-12 minutes. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, drizzling with ⅓ BBQ sauce (reserve remaining for second meal). Bon appétit!
