      I made this when I heard about it from the NYT. I recently went looking for the recipe and was thrilled to find it here. The chipotle and cilantro gave it such a burst of flavor and it was such a nice change from the usual Knorr dip recipe.

      this was good! i added a can of chopped water chestnuts as i needed more texture but it was easy to put together. mine was a little blandish.. i think it needs more chipolte (i like my dips hot) and maybe a bit more salt? but it just didnt have a real popping flavor.. healthy though well i used low fat or fat free items in it. next time i would probably want more chunks of peppers or something though. thanks.

      Made for My 3 Chefs 6/07. This is fabulous!! It makes a lot, too. I skipped the cilantro because I can't stand the stuff. I would add more chipotle next time - just up to 1 1/2TB as I thought it was barely noticable. A fabulous recipe; thank you enigmused!
