Preheat Cuisinart® Toaster Oven Broiler to 350°F with the rack set in Position A (lowest). Place walnuts in a pie tin and toast until lightly browned, about 3-4 minutes. Cool. In the Cuisinart® Food Processor fitted with the metal blade, pulse to chop the green onions; remove and reserve. Place the cream cheese, sour cream, salt, pepper, and Tabasco® in the work bowl, process to blend until creamy, about 15 seconds; scrape work bowl. Place the reserved green onions, Gorgonzola, and toasted nuts on the creamed mixture in that order. Pulse to blend in, about 10 times. Transfer to a small decorative bowl and cover. Refrigerate for 1 hour or longer to allow flavors to blend. If refrigerated longer than 1 hour, remove 10 minutes before serving. Serve with crackers, pita chips, or bagel chips.
