Ideas for dinner tonight. Household and kitchen tips, recipes, tweaks. What's worked great, and not so great.
Need something to bring to an impromptu party? Friends dropping by unexpectedly? Here is a great snack/ dip you can whip up in 5 minutes, tastes great and (aside from the chips to dip with) is good for you. It tastes best if you can chill it for a while, but even if you don’t have time to chill- it’s still great.
I usually make a pretty big batch, put 1/2 out for the gathering, & try to save the other for us to eat another time, but it seems that I always bring out the other 1/2! It’s just that good!
2 small cans chopped green chilies, undrained
2 small cans chopped black olives
1 bunch scallions ( green onions) chopped. I use the white parts & up the stalk almost to the dark green. It’s up to you though.
About 6-8 plum tomatoes, diced. Or 3-4 beefsteak. I’d guess its somewhere close to a cup of diced tomatoes, whichever kind you like or have on hand.
1/8- 1/4 c or so chopped fresh cilantro
Approximately 1- 1 1/2 c shredded Monterrey Jack or pepper jack cheese.
Almost a whole small bottle of Kraft Fat free Zesty Italian salad dressing.
Mix it all together, cover- chill if you have time, serve with chips, celery or whatever you like to dip with. It’s also great as a bruschetta.
