Has anyone tried this w/ something besides crackers? Would it work as a vegetable dip?

This is a favorite among my friends. When I make it with the lite ingrediants, they don't even know they are eating reduced fat because it's so flavorful.

The hot pepper sauce will really bring out the flavor and not make it too spicy. This is a great spread for snacking.
