This is a personal fav of mine. It's a little spicy but is usually such a big hit, I always prepare double the amount. Of course, you can always lessen the amount of red pepper if you like. I normally don't "do" spicy but this is just the right amount of heat for people like me.

I've listed this as an appetizer, but it's really an hors d'oeuvres, best served on football Saturdays and Sundays, or at a cocktail party anytime of the year.
