|Lindsay Olive Mexican French Bread Pizza|
There’s nothing I enjoy more than entertaining friends and neighbors, especially around the winter holidays!
I try to plan the food I serve around treasured holiday recipes and Christmas recipes. This Mexican French Bread Pizza is one of my go-to appetizer recipes. It’s rich and cheesy, packed with black and green olives and flavored with Mexican-style spices. If you like a little heat, there’s some jalapenos in it too. Feel free to use more if you like it a little more “zesty.”
This is just a wonderful snack for a tree trimming party or as an appetizer for a Christmas Eve cocktail party get-together.
So when I found out that my local Price Chopper Supermarket had a good deal on Lindsay® Olives this week with the AdvantEdge card, I decided to stock up when I was shopping for the week. I opted for convenience here by purchasing the pre-sliced variety, and I also liked that they come in a resealable container.
