    Worthy of a Special Occasion

    This is truly an attention getter. We made a double batch for a party on July 3 and everyone raved about this item. Without exception, all attending wanted the recipe so I am sending the link to them as well as some who were not there. We will definitely make this agaain for future gatherings. I believe it is appropriate for both special occasions unless meal theme dictates otherwise and for everyday meals. We pretty much followed the recipe but added a bit more of the red hot jalapeno jelly (about a 1 1/4 cup rather than 1 cup) than called for just for a bit more spice but not so much as to take away from the delicate balance between the sweet and spicy flavors. Gets 5 stars on our scale

    Awesome! I too was asked for this recipe because absolutely everyone loved it. I added about 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper for a little more spice and 1/4 cup chopped onion, and 1/4 cup chopped and seeded poblano pepper for a little more salsa effect since we love spicy hot food in Texas!
