These are great! Very flavorful and also very quick and easy to make. I used a small can of jalapenos instead of fresh ones and it turned out great! They are quite spicey though. I think next time I might try using a can of green chilis instead or half and half to make them a little milder. Also I had to bake them for quite a lot longer than the recipe called for in order for them to be cooked through the center. Read More

there wasn't a lot of flavour to this recipe - and it flopped at a recent party. The sour cream only added fat grams and calories. If you're wanting some flavour and pizazz keep on looking. Read More

My crowd loved these! I made them in my mini muffin tins for a little quiche look & they went over very well. I used about 3/4 c. of flour and added about 1/4 tsp. of salt. I also didn't deseed my jalapenos because I wanted that "kick" but they weren't as hot as I thought they would be. Next time I will use a habenaro along with the jalapenos and maybe add some salsa too but I will use again thanks Dinah! Read More

Very good basic recipe. After reading the reviews I added 1/2 cup more flour and three tablespoons of salsa. I used minced onion as it was what i had and a combination of skim milk and buttermilk and omitted the water. Turned out awesome with lots of flavor. Thank you Read More

These were just flavorless and the texture was like rubber. I used frest jalapenoes. Pickled ones would have probably been better. Not enough heat with fresh ones. I ate about 2 or 3 and chunked the rest. Read More

This was quick and easy but a bit greasy (it may have been the cheese I used). But my husband LOVED it and there were hardly any left at the party we had so I would say it was a hit! Read More

A very basic and plain recipe but very good. Use gloves when cutting the jalepenos. These are spicy. I served them with sour cream and salsa to dip them in. Helps to cool it down. Read More

I made these in mini muffin pans and it made 72. Instead of the jalapenos I used a can of green chiles. They were good but a little too bland even though I put some Pepper Jack cheese in with the cheddar. Next time I will use more Pepper Jack and two cans of green chiles to see if that helps. Also I added about 1/3 cup more flour so they wouldn't be so quiche-like. Read More

They tasted just fine but people I served to commented that it tasted like an omelet cut into squares. Unremarkable to them. Read More
