I made this tonight for my hubby and a friend to test the recipe for a potluck at work tomorrow. It came out great! I didn't have time to chill it for as long as the recipe states, yet it was still delicious. As some others have suggested, I used (less) whipped cream cheese and added shredded carrots. I also added some hoisin and Sriracha sauce to the sweet and sour to add some more flavor and kick. I'm not a huge fan of raw spinach either, so I used a mix of arugula, spinach and raddichio. Two thumbs up ??

I have brought this to a couple of parties and it was gone in a flash. I also subbed out the sweet and sour sauce for Thai Chili Sauce. My keto friends love it and I make cheese crisps to replace the crackers for them.

Super delicious dip! Agree it makes a lot, but made two smaller dishes. Was good to put out a fresh batch. I omitted the peanuts and added 1/2 teaspoon minced ginger with the garlic mixture.

Made as written, brought it to Christmas, everyone loved it. It does make a lot, used a lasagna pan to make it. Another reviewer suggested using Thai sweet chili sauce instead, might try that as another option, but it's delicious as is!

This is delicious, I've been making it for years. It always gets gobbled right up. Always get asked for the recipe. Sesame rice crackers are a must with this.

This is so good! I added shredded carrots to it, and cut way down on the cream cheese (just one 8 oz package). Everyone started scooping it onto their plates and just eating it with a fork. It was that good! It would make a nice filling for a sandwich, too.

Wicked good! I used sweet Thai chili sauce instead of the sweet & sour sauce and added some shredded carrot and cilantro.

I'm not able to find sesame rice crackers. What would be a good substitute?

Just made for a neighborhood get together and everyone loved it! Sesame oil adds a fabulous aroma to a cold dip...yum! I am thinking about making it without the cream cheese and using it as a sesame chicken salad topping over greens to create a tasty salad with an asian kick.

When I make taco dip the cream cheese layer is a little too thick also. I just thin it out with a little milk and it spreads and dips just fine. I plan to make this recipe for a graduation party.
