  1. This dip was very good. I made it for a get together I had for my son's birhtday last weekend, and it really was a big hit! I think the addition of the lime zest was brilliant! I used low fat sour cream, but no one knew the difference! Thanks for the great recipe, I will surely make this again!!!
