Spicy Peanut Dip

You can make this as zippy or mild as you like, depending on the heat of your favorite salsa. Add Tabasco sauce to your taste if you want to turn up the heat.

1 cup crunchy style peanut butter
1 cup medium-hot salsa (bottled or home-made)
2 tablespoons brown sugar, to taste (optional)
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

Combine all ingredients in a bowl, using a fork to mash up any chunks of salsa. Serve with raw veggies.

Yield: about 2 cups

Note: Quick Version from reader Linda Kress: In place of the sugar, lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce, use 1/4 cup bottled Szechuan Stir Fry sauce, or to taste.
