My dad passed away in September '11 and my Uncle made this for his memorial we had for him. Dad passed away at an Army Hospital in Texas but all his family and friends are here in Ohio. We all came together to celebrate his life and I fell in love with this recipe. **I havent made this myself yet but I think I am going to add some kind of cheese** Awesome side dish or a appetizer dip with chips. Hope you enjoy! It is quite spicy so change amount of spices to your tastes.
