It was a good dip but it got pretty thick in the fridge. I definitely recommend heating it up prior to eating. Various spices can be added to achieve desired taste. I mixed it up in a food processor for good smoothness. Read More

I did not like this recipe at all. I found it bland and not tasty enough to merit all the fat in it -- and I am not even someone who usually cares. I increased the amount of hot sauce about tenfold and doubled or tripled the garlic and cumin but to no avail. The texture of the mix was kind of chunky and I couldn't get them out no matter how hard I tried. Really this was a platform for the tomato onion and cheese. I omitted lettuce because I don't like it. I used red onion for flavour and colour and added diced avocado chunks for colour and texture. (If you do this beware avocado turns brown in open air after a while.) It would be well to have small diced jalapeno as well. It turned out okay because I increased the topping portion but I would not make this again. Read More

I made this for Faceless Frenzy July 2012 - the first review of this was in 2004. As written this is really bland but has so much potential. The cream cheese / sour cream layer needs a lot more hot sauce. I used Tapatilo and didn't really measure but I think it would be about 2 tsps. Dice the lettuce really small. Instead of just tomatoes and onions use a spicy Pico de Gallo - fresh salsa. There wasn't a scrap left on the plate and that is a good sign. Read More

I changed this recipe a lot..didn't realize I had no cumin so I used a little season salt. Didn't use the lettuce tomato or onion. Didn't use as much cheese (the cheese flavor would have overpowered everything) and I mixed everything together. I'm sure if I would have put all the ingredients it may have needed all the cheese. Pretty good and VERY simple. yummy!! Read More

I thought this recipe was pretty good. I just omitted the "garnish" ingredients and put the dip in a chip and dip bowl. I sprinkled a bit of cheese and tomatoes on top added a spoon for scooping and done! Read More

I took a cooking class (I took it at summer camp) and we made this. It was super delicious and we all couldn't stop eating it. I don't know if there is a difference between hot sauce and chili sauce but we used chili. I highly recommend it even though I abhor cheese and dislike sour cream and cream cheese. Read More
