This strikingly orange appetizer has the perfect amount of spice and crunch. Sprinkle cilantro on top for a nice accent. —Laurel Leslie, Sonora, California

MY REVIEW

This is my nephews favorite and I'm required to make it at any gathering (sometimes i get a phone call from him because he just has a craving). I alter it a little, 1/4t onion powder, 3/4t garlic granuals and 6ozs green chilies. This recipe is definately a "10" in our family!
