Saw the recipe on PAC Fall07 today and just had to make it. In order to keep the nutrition aligned with my diet, I had to leave out the bacon and cheese(sad!) and used FF milk and yogurt. In addition to the canned jalepeno, I added one fresh, diced jalepeno and 1/4 cup diced red pepper. I can only imagine how AMAZING it would be with bacon and cheese... I'll have to save that for a special occasion! It is wonderful and will be a regular! Thanks so much, QTE!

I loved the addition of bacon and jalapeno peppers. I served this with QTE's Black Bean Chowder (Black Bean Chowder) and it was a great addition. Will make this again. This was a NN adoptee for PAC Fall 2007.
