This recipe is amazing!!! We belong to a supper club and I took it for my appitzer and everyone loved it. I did add the pepper jack cheese instead of Monterey Jack and I also added some Cajun seasoning to it which really gave it great flavor. love it love it I will make this again:)

After making this the first time, my daughter and I decided it needed a little more zip, so I substituted Pepper Jack cheese for the Monterey Jack, and added a little cajun seasoning....Awesome. It is now one of my most requested dishes to bring to family and friends get togethers.

I forgot I wanted to mention that I put the salsa and chilies in a blender, for a smoother texture.

I first made this for my daughter's college graduation in 2005. It was great and makes a lot for a crowd. It is good on celery too. I am glad I found this recipe again, I am going to make it for a Big Birthday party!
