This is my best friend’s favourite of my recipes. Because my husband and I are moving in July, I recently gave her some of her favourite recipes from my mom’s cookbook, and she asked for this one too. It’s one of those recipes you can make ahead of time and everyone is happy when you serve it. If you want a little extra kick, I recommend using a mix of fresh and pickled jalapeños.
I made this for a party to watch the Putney Boat Race, an annual tradition for our friends. I mixed everything ahead of time and topped with dried jalapeño pieces and a sprinkle of parmesan:
On the day, I popped it in the oven for 30 minutes and served it warm with crackers and tortilla chips!
