Review:

What's to say?  Loved it!  I put a little extra Tabasco in to give it a extra kick.  Quick and easy to make.  I made this today for a playdate and we gobbled it up.  I finished it off with some kosher salt.

Oh, not mock a mole.....but "mock-a-mole" as in quacamole :)

I like the touch of hot sauce, I like a little extra zing.
