I made this last weekend to take to a BBQ, it was pretty tasty, and a great alternative to hummus etc. I only used half a chilli, nervous about making it too spicy for people (and pregnant me) and I think that was enough.

We didn't like this at all. An unpleasant texture - sort of watery but with little lumpy bits even though I whizzed it up in my very efficient mini blender. It had a bitter flavour. Ended up throwing most of it away.

Made this for friends for a BBQ , slipped with the chillie so was a little powerful, so quick thinking (sent husband to supermarket for some double cream) perfect dip!!!!! So found this dip quite sharpe, with cream perfect!!!!
