Just FYI to alligirl...cilantro and coriander are one of the same, cilantro is the fresh one.
WOW! These were good! I especially liked the hint of heat from the jalapeno! I followed the recipe as directed, except I had fresh cilantro, so I subbed that for the coriander. Great with a spicy cocktail, but I'm going to try to come up with a complimentary dipping sauce! These would be wonderful for passing at a party. Thanks for sharing, kit in NO!
