Great for a potluck or any type of crowd. You can vary the heat by adding more or less of the cayenne pepper or jalapeno. I added a bit more color by adding one small chopped green pepper as well.

I added more pepper and cumin. I had to bake it longer until the onions and red pepper were tender.

I made this and my family all loved it. We ate it with tortilla chips as a dip of sorts. Very good.
