Hmmm didn't think this dip was one to rave over. The cream cheese sets up very firm after it has chilled; hence many broken chips. Maybe could thin with milk or sour cream? Used 1 teaspoon cayenne and it was plenty spicy. Had a LOT leftover after party so must not have been a big hit. Tasted better after a couple days. The corn/walnut is still something of an acquired taste though. Read More

This dip is delicious and different. I brought it to a party and got a lot of compliments and requests for the recipe. All the flavors blend together and the corn and walnuts blend in and don't sort of jump out on their own. I did tweak the recipe..I added a blend of olive and corn oil and extra lime juice. I used smoky hot ancho chile powder and paprika instead of the red chile powder. I also added the spices slowly to taste rather than all at once. Oh and I used thawed frozen corn instead of canned (I think canned has an odd flavor) and I toasted the walnuts and used my Kitchenaid mixer to blend it all together really well. Read More

This was a success at my company's pot luck. Many people enjoyed it and asked for the recipe. I used green onion to give the dish a bit more colour. Read More

My family looked at me funny when I told them about the dip but when they tried it they loved it. I was concerned about a whole tablespoon of red chile pepper so I only added about 3/4 of it (cayenne) and it was still plenty spicy. Maybe those who said it was bland used chili powder instead. That certainly wouldn't give it enough kick. I will definitely make it again and have already shared the recipe! Read More

I'm sorry but this wasn't very good. It makes a ton but then I had to throw out what wasn't eaten and that was a lot. I followed the recipe exactly but it certainly wasn't a hit. Too much onion and very "flat" tasting. Maybe we just aren't big fans of southwestern cuisine here in the south. Read More

We had a heck of a time getting the cream cheese and lime juice to combine but it ended up being well worth it. There's a little something missing but I will continue to make this as it was a big hit at my company get-together. Read More
