  3. It looks so good, I am going to make when the Broncos play. thank you

  4. This Recipe Is So Delish !!! I did the 1/2 cup pepper except I used a Red, Green and Yellow Pepper I diced a little of each and dice them up to make up for the 1/2 cup I wanted to make it more Colorful for the Luncheon was so pretty plus I put a Dash of Ground Red Pepper, Chives and Parsley I took the dash of chives and parsley into the palm of my hands and roll a round a couple of times becomes very fine them drop into the dip. ( besure hands are clean and very dry beore putting seasoning in between your palms you can use wax paper and use a Tablespoon mash down on back and fourth till comes fine !!! Thanks for the Recipe, auntbea ( NorthEast, Maryland )
