    Made this today and it's got the wow factor!! I made half the amount and now wishing made more, can't wait to have it with chicken 😀  -  24 Aug 2015


    WOW! What a hit this was at our cookout! Love, love, love it! I was going to make a half batch but I went ahead with the whole recipe and am SO glad I did! There was only a little bit left and that was quickly used up when the kids made their school lunches with the leftover burgers. It vanished! GONE! We really enjoyed this and it was requested that I keep a nice, big, jar of this on hand at all times!***update*** Our fridge is never without a big jar of this! We do add more garlic than called for and just kinda splash the tequila in there - just might be a little more of that than called for in there too  -  23 Mar 2015


    We liked this on burgers. We'll use the leftovers on hot dogs, maybe. My husband LOVED it, he's a huge jalapeno fan. Just an FYI to anyone else -- this recipe divider program does not divide in half correctly. When you switch the serving size to 24, it gives you equal amounts of jalapenos and pickles, instead of 2:1 as it should be. I'm sure they'll fix it at some point, but for right now, just be careful if you re-size this recipe or you could wind up wasting ingredients! Thanks for the recipe, Christopholofigus! EDIT: Adding that my husband did eat this on watermelon slices! He doesn't like watermelon, (but we eat it anyway, for health benefits), so he had nothing to lose by trying -- but he DID like the watermelon better with this on it Just adding that for anyone who's curious about trying it that way!  -  27 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
