Ye olde American flag dip

sherry monfils


I was so hoping to get this recipe on here before this past July 4th, but everything was so crazy! This is something I made for a friends Americana party on the 4th of July recently. It's a quick and easy to make dip that looks so good! I had already made a flag cake and wanted to make something different. It's very tasty!
