Pasta Hot! Hot! Hot!
The basics of this dish are very good, however it came out kind of bland to me: I used minced garlic because I had it on hand, and sauteed it in the olive oil with the red pepper and poured it over my pasta. I'll admit I didn't have spaghetti so I used an elbow noodle, and cooked way too much so I doubled the sauce - and I could taste it but it was, again, bland. So I added a can of cooked chicken, plenty of parmesan, and quite a bit of lemon juice (after a favorite lemon pepper pasta dish). Delicious! And easy - just enough heat with the recommended amount of red pepper!

Veronica's Hot Spinach, Artichoke and Chile Dip
Delicious! I added garlic and feta cheese and didn't have green chiles. I also used fresh spinach. Next time I will add another can of artichoke hearts and more spinach.

Heather's Cilantro, Black Bean, and Corn Salsa
Not a huge fan of beans, but this is great! And healthy! I did follow some of the other reviews and added 2 packets of taco seasoning and garbanzo beans. I had tomatoes on hand, so I used them instead of canned (took me about 2 1/2 to make it the consistency I like). I also skipped the onion due to personal preference. I planned on adding jalapeno for spice but decided to add sriracha (my weakness) instead, and it took quite a bit, to get it to my spicy level, but its good. I wish I had another avocado to add, and I did add 2/3 c lime juice and a little extra olive oil. Bringing it to a work potluck tomorrow, but I don't care if no one likes it, because I have no guilt eating this very healthy snack!
