Family, friends, and food are the main ingredients for good times and great memories. I am from a family of great cooks. Celebrations, family dinners and get togethers always center around fabulous food.
I don't know who actually started this recipe, but we all make it. It is so easy and an instant hit. It is great for Taco Tuesday, a cook out side dish, or a great appetizer. Now that we can get together again, invite some friends over and whip this up along a pitcher of your favorite drink and a party is born!
