I have made something like this with the exception of one ingredient. My recipe calls for Chili Sauce (looks like ketchup) instead of salsa. Actually I made it for my family after a friend brought it to a party at my home. It was such a big hit. When she came she brought saltines to use to dip it with. I figured she just didn't have other crackers so I got out the fancy type. Come to find out nothing is better than a plain ole saltine with this wonderful dip. This will store in the refrigerator for 4 days. It is best made several hours in advance so the flavors meld.

This is a great recipe. I have made a similar one before but could not find the recipe. The only change is that I made mine without ketchup but used chili sauce. This is great with either saltines or tortilla chips.
