This recipe is so tasty and so very easy and quick. I did leave out the jalapeno as the family does not like it but added some chopped chives and parsley as well. Everything else was as per recipe, and it was loved and really enjoyed by everyone. I tripled the recipe for a warm side dish to go with dinner and the leftovers were taken to work the next day.... with some cold chopped chicken added, DS and I ate it cold as a salad for lunch and we both really loved it! Thanks Caroline this is really a great recipe.
