Wonderful! I could have left them in the oven another minute or so, but I didn't want the crisps to burn. I should have spread out the cheese mounds a little bit more than I did, but the end result was still good. I topped half the crisps with a little bit of salsa to serve.

Delicious! I prepared as directed by the recipe. I love the "bite" that the pepper adds to the cheese. DH was late getting home, so I left what few I could resist eating on the stove with the recipe beside the plate so he would know what he was eating. This morning he said how good they were, so I will be making them again soon! I love MsBold's suggestions about serving with soup and using different cheeses. Thanks Lorac! Oh I have to add, so easy and quick to prepare! Took my oven longer to preheat that to prepare these! LOL!

Yummy. I added Emeril's Essence and served them with a spicy gumbo.
