"This is excellent, not too hot at all. I used one Serrano pepper since I didn't have jalapenos and this didn't seem to matter. So easy to make and leftovers the next day are even better yet! Thanks for sharing the recipe!"

"I've made this twice, and loved it both times. My family doesn't like it really hot, so I only used one jalapeno. Don't be afraid of the cumin and chopped green chilies - the potatoes mellow them out."
