READY IN: 1hr 40mins
Recipe by Kathy228

A modification of Greek Tszatziki with a Mexican touch of cilantro, chili powder and a little heat. Great as a cool side dish. I used Toni Gifford's Chili Powder.

Made just about 1 1/2 cups of a colorful and tasty side dish. I did use a 1/2 teaspoon less chili powder than the recipe called for but will use the full amound next time around. TFS
