I have made this dip several times in the last few months and it is one of the best ive ever had. I did make a couple of changes and additions to it to suit my tastes... and I have literally been asked to make at least 8 copies of this recipe from friends, co-workers and family. I had read from previous reviews that it had a tendacy to turn out watery, so I added between 6-8 oz of cream cheese to thicken it up. I also added 1 fresh jalepeno pepper and a handful of radishes for texture.. I also tripled or more the cilantro called for. When this is refridgerated it thickens up nicely due to the cream cheese. I started using this on St. Patrick's day for a party when I needed to bring a green appetizer and served it with guacamole green corn chips and breaded, fried asparagus pieces... Since I have brought it to work for "dip day" several times and made it at home. It has become a hit already and EVERYONE wants the recipe and loves it!!!


I really thought this was a little bland, and my friends and I didn't care for the consistency. It wasn't creamy like real guacamole, it could maybe be called asaragus salsa, ours came out watery. I thought it would get better with age but the asparagus flavor overpowered everything after a day. Won't make again.


quick, easy. I loved the idea of microwaving a matter of fact, I think that I will no longer steam asparagus but just throw it in the micro. I had some good chipotle salsa. Added red onion for color instead of green. This is a nice change of pace. I kept it more chunky to eat more as a sidedish. Only added some salt and a little lime juice. The chipotle was a very hot salsa so didn't need any more heat factor. Maybe the key is to use a better salsa.
