    This recipe was fantastic! I took the dip to a party and everyone raved about it. I did substitute my home-canned salsa for the picante sauce which worked just fine. I will definitely be making this again!

    I goofed and put a whole tomato in the dip and didn't have green onions. It was ok but needs something extra for some kick.
