"Thick, hearty dip that is great with pita chips or tortilla chips. As an optional ingredient, I sometimes fold in chopped Kalamata olives. Enjoy!"

    ZWT4: I made this midafternoon and just now, this evening, got to give it a taste. Outstanding!! My hubby and I ate it for a late evening snack with chips and veggies!! I did add the kalamata olives per the suggestions in the reviews - Yummy!!

    This dip was Delicious Vera! I had some cream cheese that needed to be used and this turned out to be the perfect recipe to use it with! I refrigerated it overnight and forgot about the olives or I would've tried that too. My family enjoyed it with frito chips and later with carrot sticks! :D Made for ZWT4. Go Jefes! UPDATE: Tried today with the kalamata olives and it was delicious!

    Followed your recipe right on down & DID add the finely chopped Kalamata olives at the end! Served this up with some regular tortilla chips but also with the corn chip scoops as well as with some yam chips ~ Very nice tasting, no matter how it's served! [Made & reviewed while touring Greece on Zaar's World Tour 4]

    This dip is great, so creamy and full of garlicky flavor! We had this as an appetizer with steak and it was the perfect addition to our meal. Thanks for this recipe it will be a great one to take to parties and family gatherings! Made and Reviewed for AUS/NZ swap #14.

    This sounds wonderful but I notice that, in the instructions you say to add cream cheese, but there isn't any mentioned in the ingredient list. How much do you use?
