First I do love Paula Deen but I had to have a quick dip for a company party. Found this one and thought just this one time I would make this. Did not see how it could be that good. Surprise, I am constantly asked to bring this dip. I change it up with the jar cheese spread like using the hottest one. Also have been known to cut and fry corn tortilla chips then sprinkle salt and chili powder on them.

I have been making this for my office for quite a few years. They love it and once they start eating it, they can't stop! They always ask "Did you bring your dip??" I tell them it's Paula Deen's!! Thanks for the great recipe.

This recipe was very easy and quick to make, but lacking something so I added some fresh dill and garlic paste made from fresh garlic (mince/chop fine then take the back of your knife and spread until garlic becomes like a paste on your cutting board.) My husband's only comment was "does it really need the butter?"....all I said was "that's just Paula, and yes it does."
