Since the weather is getting nice, I thought I'd share some of my favorite dip recipes. I love having family and friends at my home, and good food is a must, even if it's just snacks. My closest friends are used as taste testers for many of my new recipes. They don't mind it at all. But they will truthfully tell me, if it's a keeper.
I hope y'all enjoy this one!
