I got this recipe from my local grocery store. Every Friday they have samples of food and homemade recipes and this was one of those dips I just went gaga for. I make this about once a month. It's a tad spicy but so good. If you don't want as much spiciness, reduce the amount of red pepper flakes and cayenne pepper.
