I love Mexican food and enjoy indulging in a nice dip even now and then. This dip was nice and chunky ensuring I got all the good stuff on every chip. It was good and spicy like true Mexican food usual is and packed a mind blowing amount of flavor. I will be making this 5 star dip again in the near future.
