This is a delicious casserole that will remind you of getting a large order of nachos at your favorite restaurant. It looks spectacular coming out of the oven, and it tastes awesome. Just like a big plate of nachos. You might even want to bring this to your next social gathering as an appetizer. To cut the heat down omit the jalapeño pepper and hot sauce, or adjust to your liking.
I'm already on record here at RZ that my hubby & I love devilled eggs. He has his favorite version, but these might become mine. Haven't made them yet, but they just sounded so good that I couldn't wait to share ... & preserve the recipe for myself. Recipe Source: California Egg Commission & I made only 1 sml chg ... subbed for the seasoning according to my preference.
*** NOTE: Ingredient amts for mayo & blue cheese have been revised. ***
This is really delicious, especially if you are low-carbing it. It's a great alternative to "plain" tuna salad. Can be used as a dip for celery sticks, spread on celery stalks, or stuffed in cherry tomatoes. Prep time does not include chill time, since you can leave it in the fridge for longer than the one hour mentioned in the recipe.
Guests will be surprised to find that these appetizers, studded with nuts and bejeweled with pepper jelly are not to be saved for dessert. This is one cookie recipe that should certainly be paired with cocktails.
