When my friend raved about this appetizer recipe I had to have it. It really does get rave reviews and everyone wants to know "what's in it?".

I've been making these for 15 years and I have to say they are a crowd pleasing staple! The only thing I do differently is I use only one jar of roasted red peppers and I dice them before adding. So good, I usually make it as a football snack!
