Expert Tips

Make this southwestern-style dip even more festive by arranging blue, red and yellow corn chips around the bowl on a large platter. A sprinkle of fresh cilantro adds a burst of color, too.

Not a walnut fan? Cashews and almonds are good replacements.

Fill hollowed-out large bell peppes with the dip and arrange on a tray lined with corn husks.
