"I really, really wanted to like this based on 500+ reviews, but the recipe is written to loosely.... 1 bunch of fresh cilantro is overpowering. I had to experiment to find a balance that didn't end..." See more up tasting like straight cilantro. 1/2 a small bunch would be a good estimate. Otherwise, this was a good base to build on for personal taste."

I had no idea what a "bunch" of cilantro was precisely though; so I used about 1/2 cup (loosely packed)of fresh chopped; probably 20 pieces) Cil..." See moreantro is a very strong, distinctive flavor and I probably could of used less. But, I love cilantro and I love med spicy salsas, so this is a dip that I will make again and again. I am just not sure if I like it best on "Southwestern Eggrolls" or for "Black Bean Pinwheels" best though... or maybe... on steak fajitas... or maybe on spicy-mesquite chicken tacos... Truly a fresh tasting, delicious dip for MANY different things! Just make sure you like the flavor of cilantro. Oh, FYI;this will be slightly "lumpy" if you do not have your cream cheese at room temperature. And, it will be AS spicy HOT AS THE BRAND YOU USE of tomatilla salsa (there are hundreds of different kinds;hot med, mild etc. just like any other salsa) Hope this helps you make it "5 star" for you... :)"
"Excellent recipe! We added 1 Tbsp. chopped jalapenos for some extra spice. Great with everything-- as a dip, spread, filling, sauce, etc. BTW, "tomatillo salsa" is also known as "Salsa Verde"-- defin..." See moreitely use the whole 7 oz. can to get the creamy consistency and delicious "green" taste."
