I love jalapeno anything and BEWARE, it starts like this: An innocent recreational jalapeno indulgence. Then one develops a tolerance; then comes the addiction. Are you frowning? I can't tell.

What a refreshing change! I'll definitely be making this often. I used left over rotisserie chicken, but changed up the ratios to give the salad extra zing. I used only one cup chicken, and used 1/4 cup sour cream and 1/4 cup mayo. More than enough heat for me that way! Can't wait to test it out with tuna.

This was a great salad that even my kids liked, which almost never happens! I think we could have put more jalapenos and cilantro in for our taste, but for most people this would probably be about right--just a little hint of zing. We served it on croissants, yum!
