    I did a single serving of this recipe... It was really good but I find that the eggs/cheese/sour cream get stuck in the blender and I can't really get it out easily. Definitely left some behind that I couldn't get under the blades. Did I do it wrong? Any tips?

    Thanks!

    I made this last night and it was awesome. Use a food processor instead of a blender and it's really easy to get out and yummy!!!
