I honestly can’t take any credit for finding this dish. I didn’t even buy the ingredients, but Idid make it, so that has to count for something. During my first ten minutes with my family my mom showed me this recipe and told me she already had everything to make it. Easy peasy for me, since I didn’t have to go shopping at three or four grocery stores to find what I needed. We ended up toasting some sourdough bread instead of the baguette, because our french bread sadly went bad really fast. Silly warm humid climate. This was pretty much all we ate for dinner, because it was so delicious. With a glass of sweet tea, it was the perfect southern treat. This dip would be awesome for Super Bowl Sunday or a Mardi Gras party!
