Also reducing the milk amount will help the watery-ness. Good flavor though!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 13, 2013

A bit too watery. Drain the chiles if possible and cut the butter to 1 tbsp. this may help. Otherwise very tasty. Could use Rotel instead of the chiles or add some chopped jalapeño to add the kick you want. Very nice and open to customizations which is nice. Will definitely try again come Superbowl time.
