Crackers with Chilli Cream Cheese and a Mexican Salsa.

Spread brown rice crackers with a Hot Samoan Boys cream cheese dip, top with a Mexican Salsa, and you have a delicious healthy snack.
Start by making the dip. Beat together 300 grams of cream cheese, the juice of a lime and a few drops of Hot Samoan Boys Chilli Sauce. Add finely grated lime rind to taste.
It's the zest of the lime, the outer green part of the peel that you want here. Do not use the white underneath, it's bitter.
The idea for adding some grated lime rind to this dip came from a Pacific Flavours workshop at Cook the Books, It makes your mouth tingle and adds some zing. 
Next make a Mexican Salsa (A mixture of chopped tomato, green pepper, red onion , fresh coriander,a squeeze of lemon  juice and some salt to taste.) Leave it to rest for a while so the flavours can  mingle.
Spread brown rice crackers generously with the cream cheese dip and top with the salsa. Best served straightaway. After a few hours they can go a little soggy.
You can also make this with mascarpone instead of cream cheese, more calories but deliciously rich and creamy.
