So It is Sunday afternoon, and I am in the kitchen taking the leftovers and turning them into something new for the week. Leftover taco meat? well that becomes enchaburritos. Left over Roast and vegies oh had a couple of leftover ears of corn in the frig so I threw that into the mix as well. Came up with some yummy beef soup. Then I see all these jalapenos that need to be used so I think to my self what cn I do with these, and of course the first thing that pops into my head CHEESE. I had some cream cheese and some longhorn, so I know I can work with this....Wo away I went, and in the process came up with this little goodie, and when my Husband tasted it he told me to wright it down. So here I am at the computer putting my latest creation down. Hope you give it a try and find that you like it as much as we do.
