When I had this at our local Mexican restaraunt, I enjoyed it so much that I recreated it at home and I think this is a good likeness!This is pure comfort food to me! Feel free to experiment with this recipe! makes 2 for a main dish, 8 for appetizers
This came from an early edition of Peg Bracken's, I Hate To Cook Book. It seems to be missing from the later version. I've searched the internet for "wiffles" and there don't seem to be any.... so here is one. Seems to me you could replace the few clams with just about anything you like. If you do and you like it, please let me know:)
This stuff is addicting!! I serve salsa with broken pieces of bread or crackers. You may toss it with pasta or put on a salad, the possibilities are endless. I'm often asked to make it for parties because most people just adore this dip. -ADDED: I just recently discovered that this is Michael Chiarello's recipe & here all this time I thought my mother in law was a genius for coming up with this wonderful recipe.
I got this Buffalo chicken dip recipe from a respiratory therapist at the hospital where I work. He brought it to a party and everyone asked for the recipe. I appreciate all the reviews that have been written about this recipe since I posted it so long ago. I see more and more that people are making it with freshly cooked chicken - great idea. I also like the idea of using rotisserie chicken. The original recipe used canned chicken for convenience, but I agree with all of you that the fresher meat tastes better. Barb
P.S. Thank you to everyone who has reviewed this recipe. I love it, too, and it makes me feel so good that so many of you have enjoyed it. Thanks again.
We watched these being cooked right by our table while in Huatulco. The smell when the marinade was brushed on the jumbo shrimp while on the grill filled the air - so good! This is our version. Enjoy!
**Preparation time includes 30 minute marinading time
(****edit June 25/07 - it was suggested that lime juice would be good instead of lemon juice so I tried it out and I prefer it that way. Thank you for that!)
***NOTE : ) Aug. 7/10 - discovered an even better way to enjoy this recipe! Ran out of skewers so just threw the prawns with all the marinade into a foil pan and threw that on the bbq stirring and turning for about 5 to 7 minutes (depending on size of your prawns). They turned out wonderfully moist and tasty and the resulting sauce was fabulous to dip a crusty bread onto. The sauce is also very tasty ladled on top of linguine. So fast and easy. Cuts the prep time down to basically nothing.
This recipe comes from The Best of Mexico cookbook. It won first place at my work site last year during our annual Cinco Day Mayo salsa and guacamole competition. Wear gloves when you chop the Serrano chilies.
There is not a lot of lime juice in this recipe so prepare it as close to serving time as possible to avoid browning.
A delicious combination of fresh herbs and sour cream for your chips or veggies. You can even make this for over your baked potato. I made this all last summer for company and family while the fresh herbs were growing. It tastes better over time. Herbs must be fresh except cumin for this enjoyable dip.
