I take this to just about every potluck and family get together. No idea where I got this recipe 15+ years ago!

This is a very tasty appetizer! It would also be great served alongside a bowl of your favorite soup. Next time I make this I'm going to try it with sliced jalapenos on top for an extra kick!
