We love this dish as a snack, as lunch or a great addition to any party spread!  The picture is a little off — we forgot to add the olives until after we devoured half of the dish.  It’s great even with a layer missing!  :)

Also, a little note on the cheese, cream cheese and sour cream — we get these organic and raw from our local farmer.  If you don’t have access to an organic farm, the next best thing is to choose the organic dairy options in the grocery aisle.  It’s very important for your health to keep the hormones, antibiotics and other nasty stuff out of your food!

Squeeze of lime juice
