I made this as an appetizer for an Easter get-together.
Using the small, golf-ball sized potatoes makes them an
ideal finger food. Everybody seems to llike these.

As with many party dishes, I divided them into 3 groups,
mild, medium, and x-hot. I knew there would be people
who like it as hot as you can get it. This dish works
great with any heat level.

These also keep very well in the fridge for up to a
week. Just pop them in the microwave and they make
a great snack or side dish.
