"I wing recipes, don't measure much. Used more garlic than called for, and added about 2 tsp cumin powder when blending. Nice flavors, not difficult."

"Good flavor, next time I might add a little chili powder, cumin and red pepper for a little more kick. But otherwise, a great all-veggie dip and a nice alternative to high-fat dips."
