This is very flavourful, colourful nice and chewy and really "good"! I had this as an evening snack today(and it's also my first meal of the day). I did leave out the serrano/jalpeno chillies, simply because I dont use them and didnt have them on hand. I guess half a green chilli could be used as a good substitute. Cashewnuts would go best with this, IMHO, though I have to admit that I did not use any nuts as I have been gaining some unwanted pounds of late, and I need to start taking action once again...But, all said and done, this is a nice recipe! I had this as soon as I made it, but I do feel, it would taste alot better chilled. Thank you for sharing. I'm going to be chewing on this instead of biscuits and cookies pretty often;)
