I've been told by fellow party-goers that this recipe tastes exactly like a jalapeno popper. I like that it can be made without much fuss. —Ariane McAlpine, Penticton, British Columbia

This is one of our favorites; it is SO good. Much easier than stuffing jalapenos!

I'm usually not a fan of raw peppers, but actually prefer them to the corn chips with this dip.

This is a very delicious dish. It was a hit at a birthday party and many requests for the recipe. Was asked to take it to a Father's Day BBQ. Will be one of my frequent dishes per request, I am sure.

My husband loves this recipe, he asks for it all the time. It really does taste like a jalapeno popper and goes great with tortilla chips.

Made this for a Super Bowl party. Our guests loved it. I am making it again for a Valentine's Day get together. The leftovers were even good the next day.
