This was amazing! It has a little too much kick to it for me so next time I'll reduce the amount of red pepper flakes but everyone else loved it. I doubled the receipe and it fit perfectly in a bread bowl!

WOW! Wow! WOW! This recipe is awesome. It tastes decadent and wonderful. I made one substitution... I don't like miriacle whip, so I substituted light mayo. I was also nervous about the red pepper flakes because I don't like spicy dishes. However, they gave the dip the perfect background flavor. And to top it all off, it is soooo easy to make. Just throw all the ingredients in a saucepan and warm them up. I will definitely make this again!
