      Creamy, cheesy, with a zip. Very good dip. I used 1/3 cup fat free half and half and left the seeds in the peppers for the heat. Thanks for posting.

      Enjoyed this very much. Used only 3/4 cup ff half and half. I also actually liked this the next day chilled.

      Yum yum yummy! I omitted the half-and-half, fearing that it would be too liquidy, and the consistency was great. The cream cheese sounded weird, but I didn't even notice the taste (it's hard to convince the cubes to disperse though). Intriguingly, this tastes like it contains meat. Maybe it's the olives? I used a mexican cheese blend instead of jack, and I didn't add any salt -- olives and tortilla chips were sufficiently salty. This is wonderful-tasting and easy to make after you get through the chopping.
