    SkylerFox's Note:

    My buen amigo Pablo works at Chevy's and was nice enough to share this with me. He said you can adjust the number of peppers to you "heat" liking. There is no liquid smoke added like other knock offs claim. The key to the smokey flavor is the char-grilling that takes place first.

      The real deal!!!! I used to much garlic, and made it to spicy but, it was so close. The black pepper is the missing link!!! It smelled just like the real deal!!! I've been trying for years to copy this,, thanks so much! You're right, the popular recipe on the web w/the liquid smoke is a joke, not even close. You rule! Note I only used 1 teaspoon of salt.

      Good recipe. Comes pretty close overall. Agree with other commenter that dialing down the salt to 1 tsp is a good idea. Also agree with recipe contributor that the liquid smoke is a problem -- I tried that take and it was so bad I had to throw out the whole batch.

      This turned out excellent, but a bit too spicy. The next time I made it, I reduced to 1 jalapeno, 1 tsp. pepper, and 1 1/2 tsp of salt. It tastes very much like Chevy's. I've made this numerous times now, and I find that the more I blacken the veggies on the grill, the more authentic it tastes. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!
