Casual, last minute summer get togethers are the best. Backyard barbeques, evening gatherings around a campfire and poolside rendezvous are what August is all about. The best part is that most of these casual gatherings require very little planning and organization. A few simple snacks, some willing participants and voila - it's a party.
I like to make this Mexican dip for casual summer parties because even though its ridiculously easy, it gets big points for its dramatic presentation. Chips and cheesy dip are a welcome addition to almost any summer time gathering.
Mexican Star Dip
2 cup cheddar cheese 1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1 cup mayonnaise 1 medium tomato
1 can olives, sliced ¼ cup green onions
1 can green chilies tortilla chips
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
Combine cheese, mayonnaise, 1/3 cup olives, chilies, garlic, powder and hot pepper sauce.
It's obvious from the pictures that this dip is absolutely loaded with olives. If you are a black olive fan - you are going to love this dip. If you're not a fan of black olives, just leave them out or swap them with something else like sundried tomatoes or roasted red peppers.
Take this to your next party and I promise that your guests will be impressed.
