After trying to create a Mexican soup, I ended up with this outstanding dip that eats like a meal. My husband and two young children love it! Now it's popular for football game days or family gatherings. —Sandra Fick, Lincoln, Nebraska

"I was very excited to make this recipe, but was soooo disappointed with it. I cook precisely, measure everything, and it just didn't turn out like I'd pictured it. It was very thin. Don't know if the 3/4 c. water did that. Also used the exact ingred. that were listed. It didn't look anything like the photo. What went wrong?"

"Great dip and easy to make! I am trying new recipes to serve at our Super Bowl party and this one definitely made it!"

"This recipe is a keeper. To jazz it up a bit, I added more cheese, more chili powder. As a volunteer field editor, who hosts lots of parties, I know I will be making this recipe again.. and again."

"Excellent dip. I made a batch for our family reunion so folks would have something to munch on while we waited to serve the big meal. Some ate so much of this dip they weren't hungry! I used our own home-grown frozen corn and opened up a can of chipotle peppers and put in one of the peppers and a little of the sauce instead of just the hot pepper sauce and I added extra cheese. VERY good! I served it with tortilla chips instead of corn chips, too."
