READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Bev I Am

This is another recipe from my mom's recipe box. It is used as an appetizer or snack to serve hot on crackers. She added to her recipe that it is best made the day before serving and kept in the refrigerator until use.

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!
