Made for ZWT-8 yesterday & like other reviewers, I made a half recipe of this tasty "quick dip". There's just 2 of us & DH is away on a fishing trip, but he'll enjoy a leftover snack when he gets home late tonite. I used a med-heat chunky salsa, reg cream cheese & low-fat sour cream I had on-hand. While I esp liked the creamy richness, I do suggest using a chunky variety salsa to add texture to the dip. In fact, after my taste test I added chopped black olives for myself & for DH when he returns. Part of the appeal of your recipe is how easily it allows for these types of pers pref. This dip was enjoyed as a "prelude" to your Recipe #300135. Thx for posting this recipe for us.
What a find!!!<br/>Not only was this was made from ingredients that are always in our house, and it really couldn't have been simpler to throw together, but it tasted really fantastic too...DH and I both loved it, and devoured it in double quick time.<br/>A great little dip to stick up your sleeve for unexpected guests...<br/>Made for THINK PINK-OCT '11.
Easy and delicious - what's not to like? I made this exactly as posted using both low-fat cream cheese and sour cream with a hot salsa. It really wasn't even that spicy because the sour cream and cream cheese seemed to cool it down. We enjoyed this with sea salt tortilla chips. This does make a lot, so you could easily halve this, if you wish. Thanks for sharing!

I also have two fur babies (cats); Kobee, AJ; we had to put our youngest cat Sly down Jan 2014. :(. I am also married to my best friend, Jeff and have been since April 2005. I love cooking, hate cleaning and will do whatever I can to get out of it! I love grilling and baking. I do most of the grilling at my house, and bake for almost a week straight at Christmas time! I can make or will attempt just about anything, though I rarely make brownies, my husband's are the best! Homemade breads are not my friend, so I am always working on bread baking.</strong></span></p> <p><span><strong>As for recipe ideas (besides zaar) Cooking Light Cookbooks are my favorites. I love to make new meals and try new things; it is hard though because my husband is picky when it comes to veggies (and hates seafood); If it were up to him we would have baked-bread crumb chicken and white rice at least one meal a day! Over the past couple years with zaar, I have found tons of new recipes my family normally wouldn’t eat but have been happily surprised with new favorites.</strong></span></p> <p><span><strong>I love to join in all of the tag games; I haven't been as present as I would like, but as soon as my Jeff is back from working in Ohio I will be back in full tagging mode! </strong></span></p> <p><span><strong>Cooking is my hobby and passion, I always like to host the family get togethers and volunteer for the potluck dishes.
