Green Hot Sauce (Salsa Verde)

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2011
This recipe beats the one I've been using from Paula Deen's show with a Mexican woman/guest chef a few years ago, and that was a really great one. This one is the absolute best! Added one bunch of cilantro becuase I LOVE it, forgot the lime. This is the best green sauce I have ever tasted! I plan to make a larger batch and put some boneless, skinless chicken thighs in the crock pot with the sauce then shred for tacos plus lots of extra sauce on the side. You simply cannot get enough of this sauce, goes great on EVERYTHING!! I used 5 serranos the first time and it wasn't hot enough for me. If you like heat, 8 would be perfect.

Hot Artichoke Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
This was an amazing dip! We followed the advice of other reviews and added 2 8oz packages of lowfat cream cheese (neufchatel?) and skipped the heavy cream. Used mayo since we don't love the texture with sour cream, and used about 3/4 can of chicken broth to thin to a dipping consistency. We also added quite a bit more cheese, maybe two cups total, then put mozzerella on top and it was absolutely perfect! My kids ate it up, and since it made so much, they ate the leftovers the next day. So did I. So much for resolutions, this was GOOD! Addendum: After reading the other recent reviews, I wanted to add that using sour cream (I have before in this type of dip) seems to make it curdle, which is why I did not use it. I don't normally like mayo in dips, but it worked well in this. By adding the cream cheese it adds richness and smoothness, and because it would be very, very thick otherwise, used chicken broth while beating until smooth, and I think that is what made it turn out so silky. It was just so perfect! Whoever mentioned the chicken broth, I love you! We used more garlic, too, and the extra cheese was because I thought I thinned it too much. It didn't taste terribly cheesey, though. Again, perfect. I don't like chunky, pasty dips either!
