    Heydarl's Note:

    This is an amazing recipe if you like cheese. Try dunking red and green bell pepper strips and tortilla chips. From Sunset Mexican Cookbook.

      This wasn't bad, but it didn't have as much cheese taste as I like to have. Made for the Epicurean Queens ZWT5: Family Picks.

      This is great :) I used can diced chilies but another time I'll try with jalapeno. I didn't have heavy cream, so I used whole milk and added a little bit of low-fat cream cheese to give more texture and thickness. I used white cheddar cheese (low-fat). It was really good. I'll do it again :) Thanks Heydarl :) Made for the Saucy Senoritas of ZWT5

      YUMMY! This is a keeper for sure. The only thing I did differently is I roasted my red bell peppers first, which brought out some sweetness in them. I think next time I make it I will try Chef*Lee's suggestion of adding some well-drained Ro-Tel. Made for ZWT5 '09 for a fellow Hell's Kitchen Angels team mate. Thanks Heydarl!
