Here is another 6-ingredient or less recipe that Joanne and I absolutely LOVE. Perfect for a party, as a spread on your next sandwich or even warmed as a dip. It is also really easy to make!
For this recipe, we wanted to take a lot of step-by-step photos, as you can see below. Joanne was also inspired to put some fancy titles along with the pictures, which look pretty nifty if you ask me. Enjoy 🙂
As we mentioned last week, we are happily working with American Express for their newly launched cash back Blue Cash Preferred and Blue Cash Everyday cards. To help celebrate the launch of these new cards, we were asked to share appetizer recipes that can be made with 6 ingredients or less, since both cards give you 6% cash back on purchases at the supermarket. Last week our 6-ingredient recipe was our step-by-step recipe for watermelon cups and we asked if you would like to share your favorite recipes to enter for a chance to win a $600 American Express Gift Card! Entries are still welcome.
