This was AWESOME!!! If I could give it 10 stars, I would. My guests enjoyed it as much as my husband and I did, and it was a perfect accompaniment to my turkey chili. I doubled the recipe successfully. The only change made was to the amount of jalapenos -- I used only about 1 tablespoon in the doubled recipe, and it was perfect. Any more and I'm afraid I wouldn't have been able to eat it. Such delicious flavor and texture -- will definitely make this again and again!!

Very good. Went great with the chili. I think I will try it next time with sharp cheddar instead of Jack cheese, just because we like a stronger cheese flavor. Thanks for posting this, Barb.
