I followed the recipe and spicy it up a little with a 1/8 of teaspon of jalapeno. It was absolutely delicious. This recipe is good without any spicy additive. I just like a little heat!

Oh, Wow!! I love spinach and peanut butter so this recipe had my name written all over it. It didn't disappoint. This is a true keeper for me! Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT7-Africa.

I really enjoyed this recipe. I used a combo of spinach and swiss chard as I needed to use up both. The addition of peanut butter was so unusual for me, but worked! Thanks.
