“My husband’s great-grandmother and I spent time together creating this recipe after trying a similar version from his aunt. So it not only tastes delicious, it also has a lot of sentimental value.”—Amber Massey, Coppell, Texas
"Every Christmas Eve, our family has a special hors d’oeuvre supper and this seafood-stuffed dip is a much-requested staple," says Terry Flewelling of Lacombe, Alberta.

Dorothy combines some of her hamburger mix with convenient canned chili, tomato sauce and enchilada sauce to make this warm dip. Served with tortilla chips, it's an easy Mexican appetizer that will please a crowd.
