    Derf's Note:

    Made this for Sunday Breakfast, it can be prepared in advance and served at room temperature. Tingly on the palate! Cut in small wedges it could be served as an appetizer. From Mexican, Healthy Ways with a Favourite Cusine.

      Question on thinly for slices. I used a 1mm slicer and it worked good, but felt that maybe 2mm would be better. Did not have any jalapeo peppers so sub; green chilis. The completed dish was very good and will make it again.Robert
