Expert Tips

The first time I tried this dip known in Puerto Rico as cielito lindo (pretty sky), I was at my brother's house. My mother-in-law would prepare it for all of our family reunions and it was always delicious. I immediately took note of all the ingredients in it and it has since then become a favorite at my parties too. For me, it was love at because I was instantly enamored with this dip. It's perfect for birthday parties because you can prepare the amount you need depending on how many guests you're having, so you can serve it in either individual cups or buffet style so everyone can serve themselves the amount they want.

You can also add ground beef and guacamole.
