Delicious and easy to make. I substituted half a chopped red bell pepper for the jar of sweet peppers. We garnished ours with no-mayo cole slaw. Yum!

this was absolutely fantastic - loved the texture of the crunchy nuts and the subtlety of the chocolate. I added a little garlic powder and jalapeno powder, plus topped them with homemade pico and guac, but otherwise no changes. definitely will make it again!
