Mexican Dip

Niners or no Niners.. the show must go on…

Here is a zesty recipe for Mexican dip to set the mood for the Superbowl XLVIII Seattle Seahawks vs. Denver Broncos. I had found this recipe in my collection of handwritten recipes years back and since then have made it many times. It’s always a hit.
