  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1 (8-oz.) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped olives
  • 1 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese or sour cream
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
  • Optional: 1-2 Tbsp Sun-dried Tomatoes, finely chopped
  • Optional: 1-2 Tbsp red onions, finely chopped
  • Optional: 1-2 Tbsp cooked bacon, finely chopped

  1. Bake pecans in a single layer at 350° for 8 minutes or until lightly toasted. Let cool and chop into small pieces.

  2. Stir together all ingredients (saving some for garnish) and bake in the oven for 15 minutes, stirring halfway through. Serve hot or warm (slightly above room temperature) as dip will thicken as it cools. Garnish just before serving.
