I made these the first time with some leftover roast meat. I wanted to jazz up the leftovers and here is what transpired! My husband and I love these little, golden, crisp chimis! We make them for parties all the time. This is excellent served with guacamole, or alone! —Danielle Luaders, Clever, Missouri

"These are SO good. I had to change it a little because I didn't have pepper jack cheese. I substituted monteray jack cheese for the cheese and jalapenos for the chiles to try and keep the spice. Excellent flavor. I have even frozen them un-cooked and cooked later and that works well."
