      So before I made this recipe, I made the jalapeno cilantro cream sauce twice. The first sauce I made as directed and served it with tacos and burritos in place of ordinary sour cream. I let the sauce sit in the fridge for 3 hours to let the flavors blend. While I thought it was good, it wasn't quite hot enough for our tastes. In fairness we do like VERY spicy food. The second time I made the sauce to top baked potatoes, I made it as directed but left half of the jalapeno's seeds in hoping for more hot. It was much better but still not hot enough. The third time was when I made the fiesta chicken. This time I made as directed but used 1 jalapeno, 1 habanero, and one half of a hatch green chili (no seeds from any). It was the best sauce so far. For the chicken I made as directed except I just used store bought breadcrumbs. I also used 1/2 tablespoon New Mexico Red chili powder and 1/2 tablespoon McCormick chili powder. The chicken came out awesome and paired so well with the cream sauce. Since this is such a good recipe, I must check out other recipes posted by Susie. Thanks.

      This is great, I have made it several times. Lately, I have been baking it in a 9 x13. Put olive oil in the bottom and flip it half way thru. I do 400 degrees for about 35 minutes.
