  1. We love this in our family, but we are not fans of hot so substitute mild salsa instead. It works for us! Just caught your photo in Blogdom...always fun!

  2. Looks so good..I could have this right now..for breakfast!

  3. Looks really good, I have family coming this week and will be wanting some snacks for the evenings. I just may use your recipe. Love the ramskin idea. Kathy

  4. Any dips I love! This one is so easy and sounds delish! Thanks!

  5. I made extra batches of your salsa which is known in our neighborhood as, "Front Porch Salsa", just so we could make more of this dip! I served this dip to some guests who, after one bite, turned into a shark feeding frenzy! Thanks again for the recipe!

  6. Yumm!! That sounds fantastic! I will definitely be trying this some time.

  7. That's my favorite...I have made that so often, and it's much better if you use Judy's Salsa recipe...back from
    It's a staple in our house.
    Now is the time to fix up a batch of Salsa for the winter time.

  8. Love this dip. Thanks for the great recipe.

  9. Oh yum, I'd love to dip some bread in there. Great for football season :0)
