I even pat it down with a paper towel to make sure it is dry enough before...

Wow! A little work, but this was fabulous. We made a huge batch and froze extras in 2 person portions to pull out for meatloaf sandwiches on week nights. Awesome recipe!"

The preparation was easy and I had all of the ingredients on hand which is always nice. The texture was creamy and nice. I added extra adobe sauce from the chilies and a little red pepper to give it an underlining heat. It was yummy hot and I am going to try it cold for lunch today. Maybe serve in shot glasses with a little chopped shrimp and cil...
