This is one of Autumn's favorite recipes. She usually asks for it on her birthday. Though that is still several months away, she and her friend Ashley did a guest spot in my kitchen today, and made this dish. They giggled as much as they cooked.
This dip is taken straight from the oven and served with tortilla chips. Or, if you prefer, you can spoon some onto a flour tortilla, roll, and enjoy! Add a nice green salad, and your meal is complete.
First, spread 2 8oz. pkgs. of cream cheese on the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan.
