    I can't but help adjusting recipes but that's just how I am. This dip is delicious! I added about 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and some cilantro. I used a combination of ketchup and siracha for the heat. Thanks for the recipe!  -  16 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Holy mackerel this stuff is delicious! I used Miracle Whip instead of mayonaise and Louisiana Hot Sauce instead of tomato based sauce.  -  26 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Wow, I made it exactly the same as the recipe but added 1/2 tbs of lemon juice. It was awesome. It was a nice new dip.  -  13 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
