MY REVIEW

"As a note, the chip part didn't work out so well. i'm more than certain this is not the fault of the recipe, but me. I made the chips the night before with the other parts, and the general complaint was that they had turned out soggy, but the salsa itself was a hit, the crema (sour cream) went down ok, but not great, I didn't assemble and was glad I didn't after the chips were a failure. So can't quite earn four stars, but the fault lie mostly with me and not with the recipe"

"I love all of these ingredients and will most likely put this in my recipe box. However, the editor's note to wear disposable gloves is concerning. As a nurse, I see that latex allergies are becoming more and more common and can lead to dangerous allergic reactions. Please make sure you use non-latex gloves, if you need gloves at all. Otherwise, soaking your fingers in some cold milk will take the burn from your skin after you chop your jalapeno"
