This was good though next time I will substitute black olives for the pimiento stuffed olives.

We served this at our Super Bowl party. Everyone loved it. Once the ingredients are gathered it's easy to put together.

This is so good! I like it better than my dip recipe I always use.I used black olives instead of the green and added cilantro, green onions and nacho sliced pickled jalapenos to the top. I would definitely make this again.Great recipe-I love the chorizo!
