  1. Mmm. That looks wonderful. Who wants to come over and help me eat it since my husband wouldn’t touch it with a ten-foot pole?

  2. I live in KC and used to love Canyon Cafe! Those breadsticks and dip, my mouth is watering just thinking about it. I’m pretty sure it was just cheam cheese and a can of rotel dip.

    1. Hah! Yeah the salsa cream cheese dip was pretty simple. I just use chunky salsa and cream cheese, but I bet rotel would be good, too.

    1. Yes Kim. In this dish, it needs to be completely prepared on your cooking day, allowed to cool, then packaged in freezer bags.

  3. Hi! I know this recipe is old, but I was wondering at what point do you add in the diced tomatoes? You have them in the ingredients, but I can’t seem to find where they are added in in the directions. Any help you could offer would be great! Thanks!

    1. Yes, I see that is definitely missing form the instructions. I would guess that you add it in at the same time as the tomato sauce, but I am double checking this with our Recipe Team. They will respond to you as soon as possible.
