    Too much breadcrumb, or not enough tomato - I'm not sure which. This recipe is good but it would be much better with about half the breadcrumb. It is dry as is...  -  29 Sep 2008


    Excellent fresh flavour! I pulsed the ingredients in the food processor and spread it on toasted french bread.  -  29 Sep 2008


    very good on crackers. I didn't add the Jalepeno (didn't have one) and instead added crushed red chilli. My husband loved it!  -  29 Sep 2008
