You should try these tasty little nuggets at your next party ~ they are great with Jalapeno's instead of olives, for those who don't care for them. Either way, they are a great finger food for any party. Serve them up with your favorite salsa... I made them last night, so all of the flavors had plenty of time to mesh. Enjoy!
