Author: The internet! I have no idea where it originated but has been a favorite for years. Great with chips or crackers.

8 oz. cream cheese, softened                                                         1 small can black olives, chopped
1 red bell pepper, finely diced                                                       15 oz. can corn, drained
1 jalapeno, finely diced (leave the seeds in for more kick)      1 package ranch seasoning mix

In a medium sized bowl and cream cheese, bell pepper, jalapeño, olives, corn, and ranch package. Mix together until incorporated.

Serve immediately with your favorite chips or store for a few days. If stored, make sure to stir before serving as the veggies may release water as the dip sits.


Fast, simple and tasty. Chips or veggies
are a hit dipped in this magic.

1 container (8 oz) sour cream, or 1 cup
1 tablespoon dry ranch seasoning mix
1 container (8 oz) chive whipped cream cheese

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir together well until it is all combined.
Store in fridge 2-3 hours before serving.
Serve with potato chips and/or veggies.
