YUMMY! Used my processor as LP did but added a couple of extra TBSPs of buttermilk to make it smoother. We used it to dip the ribs, spinach quiche, poppers, & cheesy buttermilk drop biscuits (#106305) in at dinner tonight. Wonderful taste. Even our 4 y/o grandson liked it! Wonder about using smoke roasted garlic... Hmmm!
