    I made this dip but tweaked it a bit. I did not have plain yogurt so I used sour cream and I added a few drops of chipolte sauce. It is good. - 6/29/08

    FABULOUS!
    for CBUFORD-may need to use cuisianart type instead of blender - also add more liquid/yogurt. I added the chile lime mixture from the tortilla chips (made more than required), and added more onion, hot pepper, etc until very spicy. - 12/31/08

    Haven't tried but sounds good. I'd say if you want it chunkier, reserve some of the beans &/or corn and stir in after blending the rest (or stir in some chopped tomato). I can see where it might need a little cumin for flavor. - 6/24/08

  • The amount of thyme used was way too much; it's all I could taste, even after adding more chili powder. The corn could have been drained, too, because it came out very soupy. Overall, not pleased. - 7/7/09
