Great recipe. I used 4 oz of green chilies instead of jalapeno peppers. When I make it again, I will use a little more Worcestershire sauce.

Great recipe. I used 4 oz of green chilies instead of jalapeno peppers. When I make it again, I will use a little more Worcestershire sauce.

I made this (just for me) yesterday for lunch. I replaced the jalapeno's with canned chili peppers and used refried beans instead of the chili beans. This was a really tasty and satisfying treat...

I really enjoyed this. To make it low cholesterol we used light sour cream on top with veggie cheddar cheese. Yummy!

I like this recipe because I normally have these ingredients, but it offers a different taste to my normal uses for them. I made this with fries because I didn't have potatoes at the time. It...
