I enjoyed this sensational dip at a holiday party and begged for the recipe, recalls Joan Hallford from North Richland Hills, Texas.


  • 2 cup (8 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 Can (4-1/2 ounces) chopped ripe olives, drained, divided
  • 1 Can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies, undrained
  • 0.25 tsp garlic powder
  • 0.125 tsp hot pepper sauce
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 0.25 cup chopped green onion
  • tortilla chips


In a bowl, combine cheese, mayonnaise, 1/3 cup olives, chilies, garlic powder and hot pepper sauce.  Transfer to an ungreased 9-in. pie plate.  Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until hot and bubbly.  Sprinkle tomato on top in the shape of a star; outline with remaining olives.  Sprinkle onions around the star. 

Yield: 2-2/3 cups
