This recipe was given to me years ago from a friend that passed away and she did not put any seasoning in her food so I added my own and I like flavor to make the dish pop in your mouth. Bless her heart and I will surely miss her so this dish is dedicated to my friend in heaven. May youz all enjoy this goes really well as an appetizer for a football game or party or just a quick dinner.
