What could you use to replace the salsa? My husband won't eat Salsa...

Made this, several times, loved it...will make it again. It's great for parties too...!


I was wondering if there was a substitute that would work instead of beer? Any suggestions?

Hi there! You can use club soda instead of beer. Enjoy!

Baked cheese drops sounds yummy.plan to try

1/2 cup of cheese is 2 oz. because it is put into the measuring cup loosely not packed like flour would be

This sounds good, but it calls for a 1/2 cup of cheese, then says 2 ounces. A half-cup is 4 ounces. Which is correct?

rsims Ismoked the cheese and followed the recipe, came out very good

resims11577 I smoked the cheese and then did the recipe very good.

Made these for a Saturday night "potluck" BBQ that we have every Saturday evening. They are a hit! My husband loves them. The only thing is, I doubled the recipe, used a teaspoon and only got 30 drops. No worries though...I made another batch so everyone could enjoy them. Love this recipe!

GREAT addition!

I like to use a slightly drained chunky salsa. A brick of pepperjack cheese so I can " chunky" grate it myself. The beer. Then I add chopped crisp bacon...., continue with the recipe. Yum!

atozelec: Thanks for your comment! Here is the recipe you're looking for:

You had a recipe about 5 or 6 weeks ago that had the following ingredients can of biscuits cut into 6 pieces each and jack cheese salsa ham and scallions and I am not sure what else or how to prepare it. Can you help me. Thanks. Don

Wouldn't make these again - it's just a spicey biscuit. I tried to figure out what to add next time to make it better, and decided not to bother trying.

how about if you tried shredded cheddar without pepper in it and used mild salsa?
