    This was wonderful! I used salad olives, white pepper, and Philadelphia cream chees spread. Chopped the olives and other ingredients in the food processor (just pulsed it a few times), then added the cream cheese and let the food processor mix everything. So easy and so good.

    I love this! Kraft is over $2.for 5oz. in my neck of the woods. The only change I made was to use 2 Tbsp. of chili sauce as I just made some for this recipe.... didn't add the ketchup. This is a great spread & makes enough to give some away if taking for a pot luck or a big get together. thanx
