      Amazing! My pickiest eater knocked back 5 of these puffs at dinner tonight. Obviously , the rest of us loved them too. I served them as an entree with a side of Spanish green beans and the whole family requested that I add them to our "favorites" list. Thank you!<br/>.

      I made these as is with some amazing chorizo from the butcher down the street from my house - delicious! Perfect for a football Sunday. I put them out some whole grain mustard as a dipper that made them even better!
