This was really disappointing. I thought the flavours would be great together but they weren't. I can't quite put my finger on what was wrong though. Read More

I've made this recipe for years but instead of putting salsa I usually use the jalapeño juice from the can and I also cut some jalapeños and toss them in....it's fabulous and very easy to make! Read More

I love this simple and tasty tuna dip! It goes well with pretzels buttery crackers pita chips or you can top thin slices of french bread with it and throw on a slice of cucumber!:) Make sure you use a saucy salsa that you love. We use a chunky hot salsa w/ plenty of tomato sauciness to it. This is one of my go-to quick snack recipes since we always have the ingredients on hand. Sometimes I'll toss in minced onion or parsley flakes or fresh minced red onion to change it up. Thanks for this delightful dip!:) Read More

Thanks Joanne! I used to order an appetizer similar to this at a restaurant where I used to live. I moved two years ago and have not seen it since. I have tried half a dozen times to make it with no success. I was so thrilled to find this recipe I made it and it was yummy! I love spicy food so next time I make it I will use HOT salsa. Read More

I made this recipe but omitted the salsa. Tastes really good with just the tuna and cream cheese. Read More

This dip was awful. No one in my house is a picky eater and it still wasn't eaten. Waste of a can of tuna and a whole block of cream cheese. The tuna and salsa is just NOT a good flavor combination. Read More
