Yummy as is!

I made this yesterday for a family function and it was a HUGE hit! I did add a teaspoon of salt, pepper, cumin and an 1/8th teaspoon of cayenne pepper. I'll be making this again soon!

I cut this down a lot to suit our needs, but I did follow the recipe. Salt and pepper are needed, and if you like heat, you may have to add a little. My jalapeno wasn't very strong today, so when I went to eat it, I added a little Tajin (a new favorite of mine for sure!). Thanks a lot for this, Lisa S!
