The Dip That Will Make You Slap Your Mama!

I love cream cheese and I love BooMama, who by the way also loves cream cheese, so I wanted to post my current favorite dip. I dedicate this to Suzanne, since it is technically her recipe. (BooMama - you and Suzanne would be instant BFF's because she can do amazing things with a block of cream cheese. It really must be one of her spiritual gifts.)

Here comes the recipe! Warn your mama because I promise you will want to slap her.

Cream Cheese and Olive Dip
1 - 8 oz block of cream cheese softened
3/4 cup mayonnaise
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup green olives chopped
3 T olive juice
Dash of pepper (no salt)

Mix everything together and serve with crackers. Serves 4 to 6.

I just thought of another dip. So if you are coming here by way of BooMama, then you are going to get a bonus recipe. Consider it my blog welcoming gift to you.

This one doesn't really have a name so I just made one up.

Chili Cheese Deliciousness

1 - 8 oz block cream cheese softened
1 can Hormel chili (we prefer no beans but that is just our preference)
1/2 to 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Spread cream cheese in the bottom of a backing dish. Pour can of chili over cream cheese. Sprinkle shredded cheese over top. Place in a preheated 350 degree oven until cheese melts and sides bubble. Serve with Frito Scoops. Serves 6 to 8.

You can substitude Paul Newman's Black Bean and Corn Salsa for the chili and it is equally delicious. I prefer the salsa over the chili, but my husband prefers the chili. If you make it with salsa, switch out the Frito Scoops for tortilla chips.

I made the chili dip today and it was awesome, I mixed it all together on the stove and then put it in a mini crocpot. Thanks for the recipe!
