just made this to go with quesadillas served al fresco, delicious.
And not too spicy for the kids, they love it.

simple and tasty. I'm sitting at the computer with a bowl of this dip and and a packet of tortilla chips and it's very good. I'm having a night in and can't be bothered making much just for myself - this takes seconds to make and works well.

Didn't have tabasco, so chopped a dried chilli instead. Really lovely, totally addictive - couldn't stop eating until the bowl was clean!

Great dip - I loved the zingy taste of it.
I served it with Nachos, Olives, Humous and sundried tomatoes as starter nibbles. Delicious!
