Appetizer Platter

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by ellie_

I was looking for an appetizer dip that was a little different with a touch of heat and came across this recipe that has a bit more than a touch of heat and spice but I thought this sounded perfect for get togethers. Recipe source: Simply Simpatico, a community cookbook

This was a yummy dip. I have made similar recipes before that I have loved and this was no exception. Easy to throw together and real crowd pleaser. It makes a great last minute impromptu dish as I usually have all of the ingredients on hand.
