This creamy chip dip is different from any I've ever had. Mix sour cream with tomatoes and green chilies, black olives and Cheddar cheese. Always a hit at parties. Great texture and taste! Serve with tortilla chips or crackers.

I used reduced fat sour cream and homemade dry ranch dressing mix. I ran this dip through my food processor to get a uniform consistancy. My family thought this dip was delicious. We ate it all in one sitting. Read More

I followed recipe to the letter and found this to be very tasty. I prefer to have a thicker dip so I would either drain the tomato by 1/2 or follow other suggestions and add cream cheese. For more zest maybe some picante sauce to taste. Read More

Great recipe! I made it once as the recipe suggested and then a second time and used 8 oz. sour cream and 8 oz. cream cheese instead of the 16 oz. of sour cream that the recipe calls for. This was also good heated up. Read More

Very good - but like another reviewer said - use 8 oz sour cream,8 oz cream cheese and drain the tomatoes for a less watery more creamy dip! Read More

This is one of the most versatile and most sought after dessert at all my parties. But you have to drain the Rotel, no question. Also try using either the Spicy or fiesta ranch seasoning from Hidden Valley. Also try changing up the Rotel, there are so many to choose from. Use chopped black olives instead of sliced, and add diced green onions just before serving. No question, with these few changes, this is awesome!!!! Read More

Great recipe. Everyone loved it. I do not like black olives at all and loved them in this dip. It is also really good as a spread on bread and as a topping for tacos. Read More

Everyone loved this dip!! My only thing is it goes runny after awhile (might drain some juice off). Great flavor. I did add a little green onion (had it on hand). Will make again for sure!! Read More

This is one great starter dip. I rate this high because as written it was a great dip. I also added my own touches after tasting by adding garlic and cilantro and a little salt. So great as written but as others have done just added my own touches. MMMMMMM good! Read More

Love this dip! We always double it using sour creama and cream cheese. We also add a little salsa to give it extra flavor. Can't seem to watch football without it! Read More
