I got this basic recipe from Dec 2010/Jan 2011 Simple and Delicious magazine. It was submitted by Sarah Gilbert of Beaverton, Oregon. I doubled her original recipe and made a few changes based on what I had on hand and it was delicious! If all pepper Jack cheese seems too spicy for you, it would be good with 1/2 pepper Jack and 1/2 Monterey Jack, I think.
