    Miss Annie's Note:

    This is my adaptation of the recipe in the River Road Recipes cookbook from the Junior League of Baton Rouge, La. This has been around at least since the 1960's and is still a favorite. It tastes better the next day after it is made. It freezes beautifully.

      Oh Miss Annie- God Bless Texas and the Junior league! This spinach recipe is awsome. It is creamy spinach with attitude! I served it with Chicken Jerusalem and it was a great accompaniment.

      Fantastic recipe! I've been making this for 25 years! I was extremely unhappy when they stopped making jalapeno cheese rolls,and instead of Monterrey jack pepper cheese, I've also used Mexican Velveeta cheese.I do double the recipe, and have no problems with that. Family asked for it, yet again, so I will be making it for the 26th year, this Christmas...:)
