These are not too spicy, just enough to give them a little zip. This recipe is easily doubled: just use a 9x13 inch pan.

This recipe was delicious. ALL of my guests loved it. I will say that I doubled the recipe but only used about 4 cups of cheese total. I also ended up using about 5 jalapenos sliced into rounds. The taste was still the same. A great appetizer/snack for any time of year. Read More

Are the measurements correct as given? I even added an extra egg and there was no "custard" to speak of. Finished dish was much like a brick of cheese with peppers on the bottom. Tasty but not worth the trouble since I can buy hot pepper cheese. Would love to make this and have it turn out custardy. Let me know if recipe is correct. Thanks! Read More

My family really enjoyed it. I think it is more suited for breakfast or brunch than a dinner appetizer. I used 5 Jalapenos seeds and all. I also spiced it up with Frank's Red Hot and some Lowery's. I will make it again. Read More

I used 5 jalapenos and this was NOT spicy. Next time I will not seed them or maybe even use a habanero instead. Freezes well by the way! Read More

I've made this three times and have enjoyed it every time. I always serve it warm though like a quiche without the crust. I'd suggest experimenting with the proportions a little- we like a lot of cheese and prefer some extra spice. It's good reheated too. Read More
