I made this as a dip for vegetables. I used reduced fat sour cream and homemade taco seasoning mix. We loved it, especially me. I especially loved dipping cucumbers into it. I will make this again, for sure, but next time I will try it with homemade pickled jalapenos instead of green chile peppers as other reviewers have suggested.

Made this for Superbowl, didn't go over very well at all. The Taco seasoning was WAY too overpowering.

Delicious. Be sure to add 1/2 cup mayo and chopped jalapenos, as other reviewers have suggested. Best if chilled overnight. Big hit!

WOW. This was the easiest thing ever (no lie - 5 minutes). Per the advice of other reviewers, I added 1/2 cup mayo and some chopped jalapeno peppers as well. I also used HOT taco seasoning. My guests loved it just as much as I did!! I will make this again and again!

I made this for a cub scout camp out. Everyone loved it. I put in a little bit of jalapeno instead of the chilies. Gave it quite a bit of spice. Had alot of people ask for the recipie. I also put in both the cheddar and monterey jack like previously reccomended. Next time I think I will put the mayo in too to make it a bit creamier. Also I think I will use the chilies instead of the jalapeno. It was also very easy.

I made this for my office Christmas party and served it with Fritos Scoops was a huge hit. At least 10 people asked me for the recipe. Next time I may add tobasco to spice it up a bit. Thanks Beth!!

This dip went really well.....just a couple of things I might change for next time,,,,I used jalepeno's instead of the green chili's...that was good....I did add mayo and some parmesan cheese, but maybe next time would use chedder plus monterey jack?? Plus I used one package of regular taco seasoning, and one of the hot seasoning,,,the hot one was too hot for me,,but everyone else liked it...I think next time I will just use the regular seasoning and add tabasco sauce...but all in all,,everyone said it was really addicting and delicious!! I liked that it was so easy- and would probably taste better sitting over night!! Thanks for this recipe!!

At an office get-together at a colleage's summer home, I was the "It" girl - thank you to "Beth" - I may have landed a date with a cutie down the hall. After reading a lot of reviews, I subsitituted the green chilies for jalapenos - very spicy (and sassy). Also, I made it the night before, definitely gelled together well. I've been invited for future parties....
