    This dip is very rich and creamy. I added some cooked bacon and chopped scallions right before serving.It gave it some additional taste, texture and it bumped up the presentation. Other then the toppings the recipewas prepared accordingly to the directions.Crackers or toasted bread for serving. Choice is yours.Glad I sampled this one. Hope to see more reviews.Taste of Home Volunteer FE
