RECIPE BACKSTORY
My husband purchased jalapeno pepper plants by mistake...ergo I had an abundance of fresh jalapenos and what to do with them. Since I didn't feel like making poppers, I searched recipes for inspiration. We love asiago cheese and that's what I had on hand to create this dip. I buy the riceworks gourmet brown rice chips at Costco and they are a great replacement for tortilla or other chips.
