Followed this step for step, though I substituted a jalapeno pepper for the serrano pepper. I'd recommend cutting back on the fresh cilantro, as it can overpower the aroma and flavor. But this dish is awesome (hopefully my pic will be published for it).

I found this at, and I used half and half instead of reduced-fat milk. The hashbrowns are the key to this recipe. I absolutely loved this and was disappointed when it was gone. Thanks for posting this great recipe!
