Really good. I swap chilli powder for cumin because it was for children. Used yellow onions and canned tomatoes. Once cooked, I blended everything with a hand blender for smooth texture. Then, I added 2 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice (but lime juice would be better..) . Excellent for a party.

My boyfriend is vegan, so I changed this recipe by adding vegan cheese instead. We use follow your heart. Anyway, this dip is really really filling! I added rotel tomatoes, so it added some extra flavor and spice to the dish. Quite tasty! Thanks for the quick and easy dip!

OMG this is soooo addicting...the only thing I did differently was to use non-fat cooking spray instead of oil for sauteeing, and I used reduced fat old cheddar cheese. The flavours mingle beautifully and it's even good cold! Will make this one again.
