Its that time… grilling season. I love this time of year when you can invite your friends and family over for cookouts. What I love even more is finding fantastic recipes to try out. I saw this one courtesy of Kraft and thought it would be an excellent appetizer. You can even use the grill to make this fantastic dip!
