This recipe is so simple to make, and it tastes absolutely fantastic. So many people overlook spinach as a side dish, but it is one of the best veggies to serve. The idea of using Jalapeño Jack Cheese was a wonderful additon. It gave the dish another layer of flavor that was wonderful and unexpected. I will definately keep this recipe in my t&t cookbook. Thanks for sharing.
