Yummy little treats but not as zesty as I'd hoped. I, too, had lots of filling left over so I used this a base over triscuit and topped with chopped black olives. Made for the Regional Tag Game.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 ounces cream cheese (softened)
  • 2 pickled jalapeno peppers, finely minced (stems and seeds removed)
  • 1 teaspoon jalapeno juice (from jarred jalapenos)
  • 12 teaspoon chili powder (more to taste)
  • 12 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 14 teaspoon salt
  • 14 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 18 teaspoon powdered oregano
  • 18 teaspoon cayenne (more to taste)
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans jumbo black olives, pitted (well drained)


  1. Place the first nine ingredients together into a zip lock baggie; mix together very well.
  2. Snip off the corner of the bag and use it to carefully pipe the filling into the olives (or use a piping bag and tip).
  3. Keep in refrigerator until ready to serve.
