"Followed recipe exactly, made no modifications. The dough is easy to work with & I got 24 balls. This was fully cooked in 30 mins & looked beautiful when done. But family & friends felt the filling was lacking flavor. Any suggestions?"

"This recipe is very blah as is. Adding salsa was a must b/c it was flavorless without it. I made these for a NY Day party. My sis-in-law was the only one who ate them."

"Super yummy!! I didn't have green chilies on hand when I made this recipe so I used fresh red bell pepper! It was excellent! The red color makes this a festive appetizer for the holidays - or add both the red and the green for more pizazz!"
