Reviews forEmerald Isle Dip
"I started making this a few years ago for St. Patricks day, I come from a large Irish family and it was a huge hit. My Fianc? loves it. I think it's his favorite thing that I make. He randomly will come home from the store with the ingredients just so I will make more."
"I made this dip for St Patty's Day this year and the family enjoyed it! I would use less of the spices because it seemed to "grainy" with every bite and I would add more meat!"
"Best dip ever"
