It's always fun to talk about Arizona history and Tastes & Treasures II at events. Stop by and say hello tomorrow at Encanto Park. noon - 5 pm. 
Historical League member Christine Hackett will be in our booth. She was a hit when she prepared Lakin’s Chili con Queso dip, page 188 of Tastes & Treasures II, for a recent party. 
Made and delivered in her crockpot, there were no leftovers to bring home. The reaction, “This is Y-U-M-M-Y!”
