This recipe is delicious!  I am not usually a big fan of kale, but this dip is a great way to get the nutrients of kale in a tasty way.  My kids love it too, as they love spicy foods. The little bit of spicy flavor in this is not intense, but gives it great flavor.  It also has a nice texture compared to other dips.  I highly recommend this recipe!
