    Very easy to make. Tastes good hot or cold. When served hot, though, the salsa is the strongest flavor. Could be overpowering for some. The other favors are not really noticeable when hot. When served cold, all the flavors are blended well and you can taste the seafood better. I enjoyed it cold better.

    This is a quick and simple dip that doesn't take little effort. And since it doesn't need a lot to make, can easy keep all the items on stand-by.

    Also good with tuna.
