Ancestor’s Dip

Looking for a kid friendly, fun food? Or something great for groups. Look no further than this fun party dip. Perfect for gatherings, a little heavy for a weekly snack, but great for an occasional snack.

*Please note that all of the content of the moonshine in the sauce burns out, so no need for concern when serving it to children. 

Serving: 10-12 hungry kids or 6-8 hungry adults

 Ingredients

-          16 oz. Sauce Zansèt

1.    In an oven-safe dish put one layer of cream cheese, 1-layer option ground beef, 1 layer of Sauce, 1 layer of cheese.
