Yummy little treats but not as zesty as I'd hoped. I, too, had lots of filling left over so I used this a base over triscuit and topped with chopped black olives. Made for the Regional Tag Game.

What a mouthful of flavor! These are yummy! I too didn't find they packed a big punch, but DH liked them as is. I had some leftover filling, and another can of olives so I spiced up the second batch for the heat seekers of the family! I will be making these again. Thank you for the great recipe!
