I was scared to use the diced green chilies since I don't like spicy food, but they added such a great flavor and were not spicy at all! Thanks for introducing them to me! It was a little dry for me so next time I might add a little more sour cream. Very tasty dish though!

I was hesitant for the sour cream. But finally, the taste blended well with the other ingredients. I used only roasted red peppers. It was delicious. Thanks Charmie. Made for the Babes of ZWT4
