Notes about this recipe

    Can substitute Tabasco sauce for ground cayenne pepper, and yogurt, mayonnaise, or cream for sour cream.

    I make this recipe a lot when I need a quick appetizer. It is very easy and usually I have the ingredients on hand. It is also easy to vary depending on what I've got to mix in. It seems like I get a smoother, creamier spread if I use the food processor to mix it. Time to make: 10 minutes. Keeps well. Lots of variations, including fruit and nuts, roasted pepper and garlic, anchovy, crab or shrimp, cheese-and-herb, or make up your own. P91
