A favourite, can be served with appetizer toppings if the pecan is not used or very nice plain.

So good. I have people begging me to make them a batch. I tried it with fresh shredded parmesan cheese. It was great. I added a lot more cayenne pepper (personal choice). Thank you for sharing this with us.
