This is a great dip for parties. It goes a long way and is served at room temperature so it does not have to be kept hot or cold. I usually serve it on thin wheat crackers.

The reviews were great and my personal review is usually consistent. But I thought the recipe was a lot of effort for miminal flavor. Maybe that is the reason there are only 6 reviews and 400 that have saved the recipe? Read More

This was really good. I made it as an appetizer for our Christmas Eve dinner and it was very popular. However is NOT good at all the next day. I would suggest making just the amount you need or you'll end up throwing it away. Read More
