    Made this very fast. It was last minute and I didn't have all the ingredients so I improvised but it still turned out amazing and my guests were raving about it. Didn't have jalapeño so I added jalapeño powder and I didn't have tomato so I added red bell pepper instead. It was absolutely delicious. Next time I will make sure to have all the correct ingredients.
