This is such a simple recipe, but it packs a lot of flavor and punch. Mixing the hot sauce into the dip really enhances the flavor while cooking. I served these on taco seasoned hamburgers as a break from the normal routine. It really tasted great. I could see these standing up well on there own as a side dish, or may be with some "ranchero eggs" Yum.
