This is a wonderful dip for veggies, crackers, and especially some good chicken wings. If you are into football parties or tailgating, this recipe should be on your rotation. I serve this to my writing club, and no matter how much I make, it’s always gone by the end of the evening. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
