  1. What if you don’t have an electric mixer? Can I mix by hand or use a food processor? Thanks for the great recipes! 

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    I’ve been making this dip for years and it is always a hit! I sub greek yogurt for the sour cream and typically add more taco seasoning. I also leave off the olives and tortilla strips, and serve with Fritos scoops or blue corn chips.

  3. Sorry. Not sure if it is on my end but the recipes are not included in your post.  Thank you. Jana Pellegrini 

  4. What is the first ingredient? 8oz package of what???

  5. I use black beans rather than black olives.  Excellent

  6. Great, easy, and simple recipe! Was a huge hit in our family. They literally licked the bowl clean!

  7. Okay, my friend and I just inhaled about half a recipe of this in one sitting. Amazingly delicious!

  9. In the picture it looks like there is chopped avocado in this, is there?

  10. This is so gorgeous! I love dips and want to make this ASAP. It might be our lunch today or tomorrow 🙂

  11. Just wondering if you could make this ahead of time for a work potluck?

  12. Substitute greek yogurt for the sour cream and it’s even healthier. With the added ingredients, you won’t even be able to tell the difference. Looks great!

  13. I don’t see avocado listed in the ingredients, but the picture looks like it is in the dip> Can you clarify that?
