WOW this sounds great i really like the ideal of the jalapenos
This was a huge success at our small gathering last night. I wrongly bought two sour creams instead of one cream cheese, but it still worked out, it was just a little runny. I added quite a bit of tabasco, and the pepper I used was called "Mild pepper", jalapeno is hard to find. I also used red onion as I had some to use up. I will make again. Friends said it tasted like a pizza!
Wonderful flavor and great for a party appetizer. I added a bit of garlic powder and used parmesan cheese for my choice of cheese. Easy preparation. Prepared for the Edition 8 of Make My Recipe Tag Event.
