We had cards again last night and I wanted to take a new and different appetizer. After some digging, I found a recipe that I cut out of Southern Living back in November of 2008 .....Chipotle Chicken Dip (Colby-Pepper Jack Cheese Dip). I love Southern Living and often collect recipes from years past. This recipe was a huge hit. My husband said it was a "keeper".
I also made Sweet/Spicy Bacon. This is a recipe that everyone should try. My mom has a similar recipe and it is called "Pig Candy"...... and who wouldn't like PIG CANDY!
