This dip is always a big hit with men—maybe because of the hearty blend of flavors. It stands up great as a leftover besides...if there's any left over. I was raised on a Montana ranch, and my grandmother taught me to cook when I was 10 years old. My husband and I (we have one married daughter) are retired now. To stay active, I bowl and do crafts. My collection of cookbooks keeps right on growing, too—I started it more than 50 years ago.
