    This wasn't bad, but it didn't have as much cheese taste as I like to have. Made for the Epicurean Queens ZWT5: Family Picks.

    This is great :) I used can diced chilies but another time I'll try with jalapeno. I didn't have heavy cream, so I used whole milk and added a little bit of low-fat cream cheese to give more texture and thickness. I used white cheddar cheese (low-fat). It was really good. I'll do it again :) Thanks Heydarl :) Made for the Saucy Senoritas of ZWT5

    YUMMY! This is a keeper for sure. The only thing I did differently is I roasted my red bell peppers first, which brought out some sweetness in them. I think next time I make it I will try Chef*Lee's suggestion of adding some well-drained Ro-Tel. Made for ZWT5 '09 for a fellow Hell's Kitchen Angels team mate. Thanks Heydarl!

    Oh, goodness, so many of my favourite things in one recipe. Cheese, cream, red peppers... I made this for a drinks and nibbles evening I had with some friends and this went down a treat. I used a lovely local cheddar and a fresh chili pepper and served it with home made tortilla chips, crudites and fresh bread. So yummy and so decadent. I'll definitely be making this again. Thanks for sharing - made for ZWT5.
