I have used this recipe for years always have people begging for it. This recipe given to me from an old man from New Orleans. It contains nutmeg which you probably won't find in similar versions. Sometimes I make it hot and spicy sometimes sweet. Feel free to change it to your liking. It is always a hit at parties and so easy to make.
