While the brown color of this dip did not initially appeal to my students, many were pleasantly surprised by the barbeque flavor. Some enjoyed the smooth texture more than the chunky because they sensed that the flavors were more evenly incorporated into the mixture than in the chunky version. I was unable to find mild jalapeno peppers at the store. Instead, I bought hot jalapeno peppers and added just a couple tablespoons instead of a can. In the future, mild green chiles could be a nice substitute.
