Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 ounces cream cheese (softened)

  • 14 teaspoon salt
  • 14 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 18 teaspoon powdered oregano

  • 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.

  3. Keep in refrigerator until ready to serve.

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.

What a mouthful of flavor! These are yummy! I too didn't find they packed a big punch, but DH liked them as is. I had some leftover filling, and another can of olives so I spiced up the second batch for the heat seekers of the family! I will be making these again. Thank you for the great recipe!

Weren't quite as zesty as I hoping for....had quite alot of filling left over - could probably fill 2 cans of olives. Good, but didn't pack a wallup...
