  • You can add a kick of heat by adding diced jalapenos to the mix!
  • Cilantro is optional. If you don't want to use cilantro but are missing out on the fresh herbs, try using fresh chopped parsley instead.
  • Letting it sit overnight gives it a stronger flavor. Allow the dip to rest in the refrigerator overnight to develop the flavors even more!
