Italian Dip

My friend Tanya shared this recipe with me a few years ago and it's always a hit wherever I bring it. It involves a little chopping and shredding, but it is SO worth it!

1 lb. monterey jack cheese, shredded
2-3 roma tomatoes, chopped in little pieces
1 4oz. can black olives, chopped
1 bunch cilantro, stems removed, chopped
1 4oz. can diced green chilies
1 medium jalapeno, finely chopped
1 package Italian dressing mix (then make according to directions with oil and vinegar, no water)

In a large bowl, mix all ingredients. Pour dressing over and mix well. Chill for at least 2 hours. Serve with the chips of your choice. Pictured here, I have Trader Joe's Rice and Black Bean chips. Yum!
