It took a Superbowl party to create this tasty dip. I wanted something original other than salsa fresca, chile queso or other standard party dish. I had been working on a crab meat caldo (soup) and the formula for this recipe just popped into my mind. It went over very well and Tipsy Ritzy is famous in its own little way. It’s fun to make and having the rum handy serves another purpose.
In a blender bowl combine all ingredients except cilantro and Ritz Crackers. Blend slowly until the mixture is slightly lumpy. Add the ingredients to a deep sauce pan; slowly heat until just simmering. Add all to a serving bowl. Garnish with cilantro and serve with Ritz Crackers or tortilla chips.
Tabasco or more minced jalapeño can be added if you like a spicier dip.
