or you could make a dip and serve it with tortilla or ripple chips, even crackers... really easy to make (the recipe is from a friend of mine that hosts a lot of parties)..
2 blocks cream cheese (i always use the philidelphia cream cheese)
1 jar salsa
1 lb shredded cheddar cheese
black olives, sliced.
soften the cream cheese by leaving out for a couple of hours, spread out evenly on the platter. Top with salsa, then shredded cheddar cheese and black olives. Serve.
it's a huge hit.
