2 (8 ounce) packages
cream cheese, softened
1 (5 ounce) jar
green olives, drained and chopped
ketchup, or as needed
My family has made a variation of this dip for over 40 years. Leave out the Catsups and add a little juice from the olive jar to thin the cream cheese. You also get a different favor if you process over chop your olives (we like Chopped). Great (addictive) with potato chips, or prezels.
I didn't think it was that good. I followed the recipe exactly and took one of the suggestions of a fellow reviewer by rinsing the olives first to eliminate salt. It was still salty and the ketchup did nothing for it. I had enough ingredients to make a modification based on suggestions of other reviewers. I washed 10 medium sized olives. I placed them in a blender with 8oz cream cheese and 6 TBSP of mild taco sauce. For the final touch, I sprinkled the top with shredded cheddar cheese. This turned into a olive tasting southwestern dip. I'm glad I did a trial run before serving the original to my co-workers. I'm sure they would thank me! :)
Have had this for years in different social circles but didn't know the measurements until I found it here. Omitted the ketchup (have never had it looking pinkish but to each his own). Simple and delish. I added a few tablespoons of olive juice as suggested (to taste - I went with 3 tbsp for a half batch) to give it extra flavor. Chilled for two hours and it was all melded. I only made a "half" batch with 1 block of cream cheese and half a jar of the green olives.
I wasn't sure how this would turn out, but I made it for an office party and it was a huge hit! I used cocktail sauce instead of the ketchup as one reviewer suggested. Easy & yummy recipe!
5 stars for ease, speed, taste, and appearance.
Tasted better on the 2nd day. We used it as a spread on crackers. Yum!
We have been making this dip for years! It is super simple and yummy. Sometimes we also will make it without the ketchup and that's really good too. Either way it's wonderful! :)
Suprisingly flavorful! I threw this in my mini-food processor and was done in one minute.
looks as yummie as it tastes
