MY REVIEW

"Oh so good! I served it on vegetalbe crackers I purchased at a Mennonite market and they complimented the spread. This recipe is easy to assemble and the ingredients are kitchen staples. The only change I made was I used a yellow pepper instead of the green only because we don't care for the green. I served it at a dinner party and everyone asked for the recipe! It's a keeper!"
