I started making this about 12 years ago. I was working with the seniors and we had a cookout for them. My boss made this and my whole family loves it. it was a big hit.. NOTE, you can add just about what you want in this, use what you have on hand. When I make this for cookouts I have to make at least 3 pounds because it goes so quick. Hope you enjoy this as much as my family and friends.
