Pepperoni Pizza Dip!

I love a good dip!

If it is quick and easy……even better!

If it keeps you coming back for just one more bite, it is a WINNER!

This recipe has been in my treasure chest of  favorites for years.  It is great for a super bowl party, gathering of friends, OR….in my case, tonight it became dinner!  I know it is pathetic, but no one complained, plus it had plenty of veggies!Toasted baguettes, toasted bagels, tortilla chips are the perfect accompaniments.  But, I will tell you a secret….sometimes, it just gets eaten with a spoon. Please, please don’t double dip though!  HA!
