FROM EASY REAL FOOD (Kiran Dodeja Smith)

It finally got chilly in San Diego — in the mornings and evenings anyway. I’m taking advantage of it to make allll the warm cheesy fall recipes I can think up. And this one is my new favorite.

This Warm Cheesy Olive Dip started with my love for this Olive Cream Cheese Spread. I knew I wanted to make a warm, gooey, cheesy version for dipping.  This dip combines the traditional olive and cream cheese combo with a ton of delicious Gruyère to create the perfect appetizer dip for all your fall parties. We served it with RW Garcia artisan crackers in Sweet Beet flavor. Enjoy! [Get the Recipe!]
