Incredible Dip

Another recipe that resembles regurgitated food, but tastes yummy!

For the life of me, I can not remember where I found this recipe. I googled, and googled, but had absolutely no luck. in finding the origin.

This dip was indeed fabulous. We dropped some off at a Christmas party, because stupidly we had chosen that day to paint the kitchen.When we returned, every drop of the dip had been eaten!!! A party guest raved to me about the yummy dip, and she seemed sincere. We only could spend forty five minutes at the party, because we had to pick up BG at a babysitting gig. That was the extent of our Christmas socializing. Amazingly enough, I wanted more, and not just because I was eyeing the cookies..

Here is the original recipe. If you are the person who first posted it, please let me know, so I can give you credit.  I didn't follow the recipe proportion wise, but instead, dumped large amounts of all of the ingredients into a bowl. That cooking style has served me well, and if I can get away with less measuring cups to wash, I am all for it.

Incredible Dip

12 oz finely shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 tomato, chopped
12 stuffed green olives, chopped
5 green onions, chopped (white part only)
4 oz can green chili peppers, chopped
4 oz can black olives, chopped
1/2 cup Italian dressing (I used fat free, as it cancels out the fat from the cheese, much in the same way that Diet Coke erases calories from chocolate cake)

Mix
everything together and add the dressing right
before serving.

  1. The dip sounds delicious. I'm thinkin' the New Years Eve get~together at Church. Dishtowels and dishrags??? I go through about three a day. What can I say? This Ozarks farm chick is a cookin' fool who buys NOTHIN' prepared. We serve the 'real' grub here on the Ponderosa!!!

    I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a great upcoming New Year. God bless ya'll!!!

  4. Morning, Ms. Lisa! :-)

    I think that dip would be fabulous with all of those olives. It's almost like a tapenade of sorts. The Spanish love olives in their tapas (appetizers). Perfect for St. Augustine!

    Thank you for sharing. I actually made something last night out of leftover turkey, and it is edible. I modified a recipe (using lots of fat), and it was actually rather tasty. It called for half and half, always a girdle buster. Now, I'm eyeing one with cheese. No wonder my figure becomes more bearlike every winter. ;-)

    I'm up early to take the garbage out. I emptied the fridge of leftovers I couldn't recycle, and I had to drag it to the curb. LOL!

    Hope you are having a nice day. It's COLD! But at least we aren't buried under roof deep snow like some folks are! Thankful to be in Florida, I am! :-)

    XO,

    Sheila :-)

    You dip looks delicious. Looks like you are enjoying time in your new kitchen.
    We use 2 tea towels a day during the week and 3 at weekends!
    Happy New Year

  6. It's good dips. I like chips. It's taste good when dip in Red Pepper Dip. Black Bean Dip is good. That one colorful dip is not bad but I like Red Pepper Dip.
    All dips are tasty.

  12. The dip sounds great, and I like the idea of canceling out the cheese calories, that has got to be the best kept secret ever.

    Also, I have 3 dirty dishtowels on the end of my countertop as I type.

  14. I'm so glad that someone else agrees that fat free dressing cancels out other fat and that Diet Coke negates the calories in a cookie. :-)

    That sounds like a fabulous recipe!
