This is a nice rich and tasty dip for chips! I took a hint from another reviewer and made the following changes: drained some of the liquid from the tomatoes, and used Rotel tomatoes with green chilis instead of regular diced tomatoes. That change, with the hot sauce and jalepenos, gave this the perfect amount of heat for us. Served with blue-corn tortilla chips and enjoyed - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for Spring Pick-A-Chef 2012
