I did use my own homemade salsa as I had some on hand and I did add just a touch of ground california chili powder. It's chili powder but it's not all heat you get, just a touch but you get the same flavor of chili powder. Awesome. We absolutely loved this. We started dipping vegetables with this but my husband went into the pantry, dug out a bag of tortilla chips and went to town. Next time, I might add some finely diced roma tomatoes but that's really not a huge change and dosen't mean the dip is any less awesome. We absoluely loved it. NOTE: I think this would make a great "sauce" as well for a cold Mexican pizza, too!
Worked perfect to shake up my monthly girls night in!
Cut down the cumin by about 1/2 and add a few dashes of hot sauce. It's better with chips than veggies, but either way it's very tasty!
