MY REVIEW

My family LOVED these little tidbits. I would think that using less of the chilies would make it less spicy without compromising the recipe.

this sounds great, but wondering if there is a way to do a less spicy version for us non-chili lovers! Any ideas folks?

This is a wonderful appetizer for a low carb diet. Just serve without crackers or with high fiber crackers.
