Oh Bev - I'm so glad I tagged this recipe in 123 Hits. My DH is also VERY happy I tagged it. I made a half recipe for him to eat during the football games today and let's say he only has another half to go and it is all gone! He raved over the flavors and loves that it is a hot dip for a change! Very simple to put together. The only slight change I made was to use sliced toasted almonds in place of the pecans (he loves almonds). Thanks for sharing a winner of a recipe!

I made this for a thanksgiving 2008 appetizer and was so very pleased. it was quite easy to put together... everything all in one bowl. even the roasted pecans were quick. but the flavor - was the best part. served with triscuit-like crackers, the dip went so fast all while the guests were reminiscing over this "vintage" dish. the only downside was that I didn't serve it first... some were too full on other apps to really appreciate the dish. I will definitely be making this easy app again. thanks for the posting.
