  1. I love anything with a kick and this has one. Not too spicy for guests at our party and the bowl was emptied and people came back for more. This recipe makes TONS and all of it will get eaten. So original and something I like to make for events. Thanks!
  2. I have made this twice now and got rave reviews at both parties. and the 2nd time around I cut the black pepper and cayenne in half for knew that some of my guests do not care too much for the hotside, it turned out just as good. If you are looking for an awesome crowd pleasing dip this is it, you must try this. Thank You so much for sharing your fantastic dip, Miz.
  3. I made this for an onion potluck at work and people went ballistic over it. The only thing I added to it was minced garlic for added kick. Thanks.
  4. Great Recipe! Who needs a mix? I used fresh garlic and parsley, and added 1 tsp of hot Hungarion paprika and 2 T Worcestershire sauce. Definitely a keeper!
  5. I did not like this recipe one bit. The taste was harsh and overpowering. I tried to save the final product by adding an entire cup of ranch dressing. Nobody at my party went back for seconds. I did enjoy the texture of adding the parmesan cheese, and will incorporate that with the french onion dip recipe that comes on the back of the french onion soup mix box. Thank you for that tip, happy holidays.
