If you are a green olive (and extra dirty martini) fanatic like I am, then you will appreciate this (non-alcoholic) quick, easy, and DELICIOUS recipe. It is a favorite at my house and an absolute for Super Bowl Sunday next weekend! Be forewarned, this dip is dangerous … I ate the entire batch myself the first time I made it so proceed with caution. (aka only make a single batch)😂
1 jar (7-10 oz) of stuffed green olives (I usually use garlic stuffed green olives)
8oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup of sour cream
Reserve olive juice from above olives.
Smoked paprika (or Doc Meyers hot pepper mix) for garnish, if desired.
Here we go…
Remove olives from the jar with a fork. Reserve the juice. Chop olives into the size you prefer either by hand or with food processor. If using food processor make sure to chop, not process into a paste. Combine softened cream cheese and sour cream. Add reserved olive juice to taste and mix well. Be careful not to get mixture too runny. After olives are chopped to desired size, fold into cream cheese and sour cream mixture using a spatula. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Garnish with spices, if desired. I love the spiciness that Doc Meyers adds to this dip … 🌶spicy, but not “burn your face off.” Serve with crackers, pitas, veggies, or just grab a spoon and eat it like I did.
** This is great to make ahead of time as it keeps well for DAYS. The only problem is not eating it all before the event! 😊
