Recipe by Karen..

These are delicious little cheese bites that are great warm from the oven but also taste good at room temperature. Makes a great appetizer or snack.

these are very easy and very delicious. i used more chilli powder than what is called for, and i'm so glad i did, cause i just love spicy stuff. i baked them for 18 minutes, as i prefer crispier results. thanks, karen for the wonderful recipe! my bf loves these, he doesn't really have a sweet tooth, the weirdo!
