This was a 2nd contribution of mine to a finger food potluck, & it, too, was a hit, as much for its simplicity as for the taste! Will certainly be doing this one again & again, & next time it'll be for one of the monthly groups I host! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Cookbook recipe tag]

I was surprised to hear that there are others out there who eat this. It has been a family staple for decades and it is my go to thing when i just don't have the time to make anything else. I saw a version using sour cream in lieu of cream cheese. That would be ridiculous! lol. Anyway, Worcestershire sauce is a must and if you are low on ketchup, a little Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce does in a pinch.

I've been making this since i was a kid..... 60/40 cream cheese to ketchup, maybe 55/45. Add 4-6 drops of tasbasco to heat it up a little. I dont soften the cream cheese which leaves little lumps through out the dip. Softening the cream cheese makes it seem more like a dressing than a dip. Either way it's delicious.
