    I make this at least once a year at New Year's. One of my husband's favorite appetizers. It's very good, and everyone loves it. WAY better than anything you can buy in the store.

    Great spread. I halved the recipe and only used 1/4 teaspoon of the liquid smoke and it was just enough for a little hint of smoke.
