Made this last night to go with a spicy pork tenderloin and it was perfect! Even after cutting the recipe in half, my family of three almost finished the whole thing, I have a little left over for lunch today. I made this almost exactly as written, only I wasn't quite perfect with a lot of my measurements, I sub'd Anaheim pepper for the jalapeno, and I forgot to put the cheese on the table, but I don't think that it was really necessary. My mom has requested that this get made again while all of these ingredients are still in season.
