Chili Cheese Tidbits

"When I had three active teenagers at home, I heard, 'Mom, what's for a snack?' 365 days a year," recalls field editor Karen Ann Bland from Gove, Kansas. "We all love spicy finger foods, and this recipe fills the bill."

    My family LOVED these little tidbits. I would think that using less of the chilies would make it less spicy without compromising the recipe.

    this sounds great, but wondering if there is a way to do a less spicy version for us non-chili lovers! Any ideas folks?

    This is a wonderful appetizer for a low carb diet. Just serve without crackers or with high fiber crackers.
