It is a great recipe. We substituted jalapeño with a green chili pepper. Served with cheese-flavored tortilla chips.

Just made it, it's delicious. It could serve anywhere from 1 to 4 people in my opinion. Served it with Triscuts.

Does anyone know the yield from this recipe?

Comment by Uma on May 28th, 2011:

Great recipe. I substituted hung curd (yoghurt) for cream cheese and spicy green Indian chilles for the jalapeno. The version variant worked well too.

I would sprinkle with dived tomatoes. It was good.
