"I have been doing Jalapeño Poppers for years and this recipe at least as good or better without the MESS! Anyone that gives this one star would complain about the horrible view at Yellowstone Park."

MY REVIEW

"No surprise this is a contest winning recipe!! It is a great hot dip with just the rightt amount of heat. To make it a little spicier I left the jalapeno seeds. Prepared according to directions except put into a small crock pot. In no time it was piping hot. This method worked great for party, stayed perfect for hours. Great addition to any Super Bowl party!"

MY REVIEW

"I made this for my company's Halloween cooking contest and took top prize. Dips never win so I was very surprised. Everyone loved it. I added red pepper flakes for a little more spiciness and it did the trick."
