I cannot believe my luck at getting to tag such a great make-ahead, yummy to eat & elegant to look at Tex-Mex style appy! As we agreed, I made the recipe in ramekin servings. They were so easy to fix, we loved them & they are certainly company-worthy. Once again versatility got high points from me as this dish works as an appy, part of a Tex-Mex breakfast or brunch, a side-dish & buffet or potluck item, or even as a picnic or patio party item since it is served cold, made ahead & the ingredients are easily portable. My mind races w/endless options & I expect to use all of them. Thx for posting this great recipe for us, Mirj. :-)
