I left the olives off the top because with olives, a little goes a long way for me. I also halved the recipe since it was just for my boyfriend and me. Pretty good.

Everyone loved this dip. I ran out of it quickly and had to make some more - good thing it's super easy to make. I did add diced jalapenos to increase the heat factor for my family. But it was perfect!

I love this dip! I have taken it to many potluck type events and if I'm not careful, there isn't any left by the time I make it thru the line! :) everyone wants the recipe and you'll see why after you try it!
