This was sooo amazingly delicious! I made it in my 9" deep dish tart pan with removable bottom. The presentation was as wonderful as the taste. I did add garlic powder and did not peel tomatoes, used jalapenos because that's what i had on hand (I'm from south Texas). It took 20 minutes longer because of the deep dish pan i used. Got so many compliments! Will definitely make this again&again!

This is extremely delicious and I make it every summer! I do modify it a bit and use about 1/3 cup mayo and the rest sour cream as I don't like mayo. I find it takes me longer to make as well as I am not good at peeling tomatoes!

Have made this several times and each time someone asks for the recipe. It is a favorite when we can pick the tomatoes from the garden.
