    Good eats Paula! Can`t go wrong with chipotles. I did used habanero cheese. Basil in place of the tarragon. Made for Mexico ZWT # 8 Gracias.

    This was delicious and looked so impressive on my table. We had guests for dinner and it disappeared in a flash. The yogourt/chipotle combo was fabulous and everything was so fresh and summery tasting. Thanks Paula! Made for ZWT 8 :)
