I got this wonderful recipe from a friend who is a paramedic at the local fire station. It's a favourite snack that they munch on in between 911 calls.

- 2 -3 canned jalapeno peppers or 2 -3 canned habanero peppers, chopped
- 1 (8 ounce) jar taco sauce (your choice how spicy)
- 4 ounces shredded monterey jack cheese (, 2 oz)

Six thumbs up from the family. DS wants the recipe for football game days. Next time I will add salsa instead of taco sauce because we prefer salsa and I am sure it would work. Thanks!
Excellent! Excellent! This just hit the spot this evening while watching football. I made as directed, however adding a lot more additional cheese to the top and also along with the green onions and sliced olives, I added a healthy portion of sour cream to garnish. We loved it and will most definitely serve this again : )
