    This was pretty good. I would add more of the pickled jalapenos next time. Also, I put in the lime juice with the other liquid, instead of waiting til the end.  -  31 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very tasty and very easy to make. A little spicy for my taste, but good. Next time, I will probably use fresh, roasted jalopenos instead to turn the heat down.  -  13 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
