This was the first recipe I tried form the TOH freezer cookbook. DELISH! I made a single batch and didn't have sour cream so I used 2 cups of Mayo instead. Definitely a new family favorite and will double it next time and freeze.
I used green chilis and sweet red pepper in place of thejalapenos.
I also used diced onion.
These are yummy. It also freezes well.
Very creamy and good! I made these for my husbands birthday and instead of freezing a batch, I made both and it was more than enough for a crowd! I didn't put the jalapenos in because my kids won't eat them, but it does need something. I will try the salsa verde that the other poster mentioned next time.
This is so great! We have made it several times since it was first published. Sometimes, when I'm in a hurry, I use salsa verde (the green kind) instead of the jalapenos. WONDERFUL!!!
