Do you need an appetizer for an upcoming occasion that is sure to be the hit of the party? If so, I’ve got a recipe for you.
Beth is one of our tennis friends from the beach. We’ve played tennis at two different clubs at the beach for about four years now. We are not members of either club, but we play as guests at both several times per year and have made a few friends along the way. Beth told me about this fabulous dip and was kind enough to pass the recipe along to me.
I made this for our “Bucket of Chicken” supper club a few Saturdays ago. Everyone loved it and I’ll definitely make this again. If you wondered who won the best chicken contest, it was Mitchell’s, a gas station that is locally owned and operated.
