Crazy Hip Blog Mamas Recipe Rally is Cream Cheese Recipes. I do love cream cheese, but my 2 favorite recipes are super simple and and really yummy.
The first is my eldest son's favorite! He loves green olives. It's almost a sickness for him. He just can't get enough. Plus the white, red and green make it perfect for the holiday season.
The second one is I think a staple for a lot of families at get togethers, but all are made a little differently.
Green Olive Dip
Brick of cream cheese softened
a handful of green salad olives chopped (more or less to taste)
dash or so of Worcestershire sauce
a bit of minced garlic or garlic powder ( to taste)
a few tablespoons of sour cream (optional, but it helps the chips/crackers not break as easily)
Mix together, chill, serve with chips or crackers or vegetables. (My mom's favorite is with potato chips, my husband's favorite is with triscuit crackers, my favorite is with celery [yes, honestly] and my eldest son's favorite is with his finger!)
2 bricks of cream cheese softened
1/4-1/2 cup of sour cream (optional but helps to prevent broken chips)
1 packet of dry taco seasoning (I make my own, so I couldn't tell you what brand to buy)
chopped/sliced toppings of choice I like;
Mix the first 3 ingredients well. Spread over a platter. Layer topping ingredients (I usually do the very top layer cheese then garnish with a few extra black olives and green onions.) Chill until serving.
I serve with tortilla chips. This makes quite a bit, you could make a smaller batch, but I usually make this for a party, then I have to make another for home, because my husband insists he never gets any at the party.
