:angel: I've finally duplicated a recipe that is very close to our favorite restaurant Mamacitas in San Antonio, Kerrville & other Texas towns in that area towns

It is so yummy!!! Try it with your favorite chips.

It would even be good on grilled chicken or fish with Mexican spices

3 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
3 tablespoons sour cream
3 (7 ounce) cans tomatillo salsa
1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon celery salt
1-1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 tablespoons garlic powder
3 bunches fresh cilantro, chopped
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice

Enjoy!!

Teresa - this sounds really yummy. I might have to try it. Think I could cut it down a bit? Like in 1/2? I know we wouldn't eat that much at once.

A funny note - this post is similar to the one about a neti-pot... lol!

Me and my wife vividly remember their neon green dip and made our own version recently which was pretty much dead on.

I highly doubt Mamacita's style neon sauce uses celery salt or cumin (although I'm sure that works well in it).
For the recipe you start w/the base which is a load of nothing but sour cream blended w/about a quarter the amount of cream cheese (yours most likely has too much, they kept it cheap so I doubt they used much cream cheese) then blend in a small amount of avocado, a little lime juice (just enough for zest & as a preservative) a small bunch or two of cilantro and about half a full globe or more of fresh garlic (don't use powder, their recipe kicks you in the face w/strong garlic flavor you can't get w/powder) and finish it by slowly mixing in tomatillo sauce (we used Herdez brand mild since it was primarily tomatillo w/least amount of other ingredients) salt and pepper to taste until it's just right.
I also believe they use green food coloring to get it to look so vibrantly green but enough cilantro gets it pretty close.

We didn't write down a recipe but all of those steps+ingredients is what we did and ended up spot on.
Yours sounds amazing too though, just wanted to help others looking for another way to make the stuff.
