Homey and comforting, this custard-like side dish is a much-requested recipe at potlucks and holiday dinners. They jalapeno pepper adds just the right "bite". Seconds helpings of this tasty casserole are common - leftovers aren't. -Katherine Franklin, Carbondale, Illinois

"Made several times, so creamy and nice addition to Mexican themed meal. Not spicy, sometimes I add more jalape?o for more of a kick."

"Oh my goodness, this is amazingly delicious! I see why you need a shallow pan, because mine wasnt and it took longer to cook in the middle, but it was DELICIOUS!"

"I made this for a dinner at my in-laws. I loved it, but many of them did not because of the jalapenos. If you have picky eaters you may want to skip the Jalapeno."

"I don't use the onion or the jalapenos... And even though I didn't I still had to double the recipe to have enough for leftovers so we could take it to work. Every time I make this my family is very happy!"
