Spicy Southwestern Dip

Make this dip the night before it’s needed, then “zap” it just before serving at your gathering.
For an attractive serving idea, place a microwave-safe holiday-themed container in the center of a
13×9-inch baking dish. Layer the ingredients around the small dish. After heating the dip, spoon the cilantro sauce in the center of the dish.
