This is very good. I followed the ingredients except I didn't put in the jalapeno because they make me cry. I only put in the lime juice. I ran out of lemon juice. Made for Holiday Tag 2007

Oh so good! I made with yogurt in place of sour cream and white onions in place of the shallots. I topped tortila soup Tortilla Soup and boy I sure did enjoy it.
