Recipe Notes

I use plain Greek yogurt but you could substitute sour cream if you’d prefer.

This recipe, as written, is pretty mild. If you want to spice it up, you can add some finely diced jalapeño, substitute fire-roasted diced tomatoes, add a few dashes of hot sauce and/or use pepper jack or jalapeño jack cheese.

This recipe can be served immediately but it also keeps really well if you want to make it ahead a day or two.

You can easily double or triple this recipe if you’re serving a big crowd.
