Take the authentic Mexican queso dip that's found in small, plastic containers at your grocer. Add a small amount of milk, mix it, and heat it. Stir in cayenne pepper powder to taste, finely chopped tomatoes, chopped onions and green peppers. Jalepeno is optional. For added variety, small chunks of avocado and some cooked black beans can also be added. Serve with tortilla chips for a tasty snack or roll it into heated mini tortilla bread slices for a delicious appetizer.

Thanks, I have never been into dips. Most of my snacks are fruits and nuts (which isn't great as they say you are what you eat).

You must need to shell the Pumpkin seeds, I did not see that mentioned. The picture is of them in the shell. That would be a LOT of fiber. (
