      This recipe is good but very rich. I substituted 8 oz of low fat sour cream for half of the cream cheese and still thought it was a little too rich. I love cilantro but also would cut back on that -- maybe eliminating it from the filling and just using it in the sauce. By the way, the sauce by itself, is fantastic -- would make a great dip. I will probably make this again with a few adjustments.

      Very good recipe! I started making it then remembered I had used all my cream cheese so I substituted goat cheese and it was still wonderful. The sauce was wonderful.

      I wish I could give this more than 5 stars. It was SO delicious! DD agreed this is one of the top 5 things I have EVER made. I did not add the jalapenos because my daughter doesnt like spicy and I used imitation crab. The sauce was amazing. In fact, I made the sauce again the next week to use with chicken fajitas. It is excellent on tortilla chips. Thanks so much, this is a keeper for sure!
