Secret: Add whole olives

The secret to a good Cheesey Enchilada Dip? In my opinion, whole olives!

Whole olives remind me as a kid of many taco feasts out camping with our family friends, My mom, Clara, and Avis were the best camp cooks in southern Oregon!

For me, this is the ultimate wintertime, party dip! But remember, this is also great as a meat mixture for tacos, enchiladas, burritos, or taco salad!
