Love this recipe. Made it with pancetta and added a can of green chiles in addition to the jalapenoes. Everyone love it.

I have made this before, I believe from So.Living. It was easy to make, and something different. Everyone seemed to enjoy it. You could use a can of grn chile for the peppers, or also add some mex spice to the filling if you like.

This warm dip is WONDERFUL. A friend made it for our Bunco night and I'm going to bring it to the Super Bowl party. Everyone devoured this dip. It took 1 hour & 20 minutes (approx) to cook it though.
