"This is very similar to a recipe I have been using for years and every time I bring this out I get rave reviews. I use 3-4 Roma tomatoes in place of one large tomato..I prefer the meatier consistency of the Roma. Also, I use a yellow pepper in place of the green pepper..I think it's a little sweeter. I use only lime juice, no vinegar and lots of cilantro. Again, depending on the size of the jalapeno pepper I'll use more than one. Serve this alongside homemade tortilla chips..it's a keeper."

"Have not tried this recipe (yet) but wanted to comment about the dulce de leche...if there is a Mexican (Spanish, Latin) market in your area you're sure to find it there. But the homemade version sounds wonderful and without a lot of fuss. I will be back to post my review after I prepare this recipe..later today!"

"These were great; I've made them twice now. The first time I prepared the recipe as it is written. The second time I made them using cinnamon graham crackers...sprinkled with chopped walnuts AND mini chocolate chips before pouring on the sugar mixture. That small change would give this recipe five spoons! Next time I may experiment with a saltine cracker..I love that salty-sweet combination."

"I first found this recipe many years ago as a newlywed, and my family of four request it all the time. I especially enjoy "tweaking" it to fit my families preferences by using fruit preserves, I often use more than one on a cake. This is a great recipe for Sunday morning, it can be thrown together very quickly...and who doesn't like a fresh from the oven coffee cake?"

I have actually prepared this recipe twice since finding it a week ago. Initially, I prepared it as written and the second time I "tweaked" it according to my families preference. I diced the zucchini instead of slicing. After chopping the onion, I added chopped roasted garlic and chopped green chiles and sauteed all along with 2tsp ground cumin and 2tsp creole seasoning and the 1/2tsp+ of sea salt and fresh ground pepper. I also used a combination of parmesan and Gruyere cheese and added some fresh bacon bits (for my meat-loving 17 year old son). And I served this as a side dish, awesome good recipe!
