This is pretty good, though I also added about a half-tsp of chili powder and a dash of red pepper. I like using water to blend it, but I think next time I'd add even just 1 TBSP of light sour cream to perhaps give it a bit of creaminess. I served this over just plain iceberg as a side to tacos recently. Thanks!

This is a pretty good base. I also followed the advice of others and added about a Tbsp of light sour cream and some ground red pepper with the cumin. I served this over a taco salad and the leftovers were scooped up with cucumber spears. Tasty!

This was wonderful. After reading the previous comments I add 2 rounded tablespoons light sour cream along with the water. I also added some cayenne pepper, cumin and chili powder (eyeballed). I forgot the garlic but I don't think it mattered. Served with a tomato, cucumber, lettuce salad. Thanks for posting Izzy.
