Recipe by Stephen Shafer

This is an appetizer that I got out of Family Circle Magazine. My hubby loved it and ate it for dinner one day and finished it off for lunch the next

Top Review by Sydney Mike

Not your usual bean dip, that's for sure ~ This one is MAJOR! I used a mild chunky salsa & sharp cheddar cheese! It is easy to assemble & has a great taste! Also goes down well spread thick on a thick slice of whole wheat bread! Will keep this recipe around! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's Pick-A-Chef]
