Very easy recipe to use as a base for your imagination. I added chopped jalapenos and pureed it for a spread to use over toasted, pita triangles.

Oh la la! I tried this recipe and loved it! Next time I would serve it hot or cold, not at room temperature. The spices are exquisite. Merci Mary! I am going to make it again tonight.
