    this dip was okay...but after a little tweaking, it was great! I added 1/8 cup water (instead of 1/4 cup), a tsp. of chili powder and a couple shakes of hot red pepper chili flakes (for a little heat). I also added the juice of one lime wedge, and seasoned well with salt & pepper. I would definitely consider making a double batch in the future though, 1 1/2 cups goes quickly! And, as someone else said...it's definitely best with celery :)

    I made this dip without the addition of the 1/4 of water and really liked the thick consistency. We tried the dip with a variety of veggies...but just as the recipe suggests, it is best with celery.
