Classic dip. Red Gold is so much better than Rotel. Of course you can always add hot sausage or chorizo plus a few chopped jalapenos. Read More

I did not drain the can of tomato/chili because it was not in the directions and the dip was runny. I had to add flour/water mixture to thicken it. I was disappointed. Read More
