I placed these a little too closely together, so they didn't quite spread enough.

I would gladly sit with you and mrs tasty with a beer and a handful of those treats. And blaspheme about how good they were. :)

I entered the challenge thread specifically to read how you made these.
Sounds lovely!
I admit I missread chill instead of chilli...and was wondering how did you chill them😂my bad.
But it says they can be frozen, so that makes me feel a little less a fool...😎🙈

Thanks!

These are really easy, and I'm looking forward to doing them again, the right way, with enough space to really let them spread.

I can see wanting to munch on these. If you had placed them just a little bit closer together, you could have made one giant one. :hyper:
The flavor, apart from the flouriness (if that's not a word, it is now), is excellent. MrsT doesn't really care for those canned green chilies, but even she said these tastes great. They'll be making another appearance soon.
