The beauty of this recipe is that it's a snap to whip up in a hurry and it's a crowd pleaser. I especially like making it in the summer time when barbecuing, but it's great all year long. This recipe was given to me by one of my co-workers several years ago. I have tweaked it a little for my liking. Note: You can double or triple this recipe depending on how many people you are feeding.
