Personal Notes:
(You may substitute the Jalapeno chiles with Serranos, or for a milder version use Poblano chiles. You may also broil the vegetables for a roasted taste, if you desire. If you like it very hot, leave the seeds in the chiles and/or add more to the recipe.) Serve chilled or room temperature.
