These are great! Very flavorful and also very quick and easy to make. I used a small can of jalapenos instead of fresh ones, and it turned out great! They are quite spicey though. I think next time I might try using a can of green chilis instead, or half and half to make them a little milder. Also, I had to bake them for quite a lot longer than the recipe called for in order for them to be cooked through the center.

I'm nuts too...

My crowd loved these! I made them in my mini muffin tins for a little quiche look & they went over very well. I used about 3/4 c. of flour and added about 1/4 tsp. of salt. I also didn't deseed my jalapenos because I wanted that "kick", but they weren't as hot as I thought they would be. Next time I will use a habenaro along with the jalapenos and maybe add some salsa too, but I will use again, thanks Dinah!

Very good basic recipe. After reading the reviews I added 1/2 cup more flour and three tablespoons of salsa. I used minced onion as it was what i had and a combination of skim milk and buttermilk and omitted the water. Turned out awesome with lots of flavor. Thank you
