"This is a cream cheese dip with a spicy kick. I make a green salsa using tomatillos in the summer, but good tomatillos are hard to find in the winter so I decided to try the same ingredients with a cream cheese base instead. I served it at my Christmas party this year and it was a huge hit; I should have made more! Serve with warm tortilla chips."

Tasty Stuff! Couple thoughts: The "bunch" of cilantro seemed a bit arbitrary. I ended up with right around 2/3 cup of chopped cilantro. I removed the seeds and center of the tomato and jalapeno...

Delicious dip. Knowing that cilantro comes in different size bunches I measured 1 cup minced. Perfect balance of flavors. This will be made often here. Thank you hawkika3.
