I added a little extra lemon juice and hot sauce -- also left out the green onions for sweet onion (avoid the heat of the onion) and I pulsed it in the food processor til rather than stand and chop -- worked great -- just have to watch it -- turned out awesome. Easy.

Just needs a little more "kick in the pants" to be a go to favorite. Served these up to some women friends - they really enjoyed it, but agreed it could kick up a notch.
