Nutrition Facts: 240 calories 9 grams fat
1 jar Cannonball olives, pitted and stuffed with pimento
6 fresh habaneros -- (6 to 8)
2 tbsp. minced garlic
1 tbsp. Thai chile paste (optional)
Strain the brine from the olives and reserve it. Remove each pimento from each olive. I use the blunt end of a bamboo skewer, but any way you do it, it is going to be labor intensive. Cut habaneros into rings about 1/4" in width. Fold the rings and insert into the olives. Pack the olives back into the jar. Add the garlic and Thai chile paste to the brine and pour back into the jar with the olives. If you can wait, allow this to 'cure' for about a week in the refrigerator. It is really very simple and you could almost say that it isn't a recipe, but rather a technique, but there it is for whoever wants it.
This recipe is new. Something that I tried with my youngest daughter assisting. I think it turned out pretty good. Since I was adlibbing, the amounts of the ingredients are just guessed at, but since most of y'all are good cooks, this shouldn't be a problem. This is definitely not a low-fat recipe either.© Jim Catanich
"Good but I think these buffalo chicken breasts are better grilled - slightly brown on each side and then baste generously with sauce turning once or twice until cooked through. But, this is a good substitute for nights when firing up the grill would not be optimal. Made several tweaks. Also recommend keeping some sauce on the side for dipping." - mrsoul51

"I made this for New Year's Eve. Followed the recipe exactly & it came out just like the photo-but I was a bit disappointed with it. Some guests enjoyed it, some I think didn't as they didn't go back for seconds. Husband commented yuck. I wasn't a big fan either, would rate it as just okay, not worth the effort. I'll be going back to the normal cob loaf dips, much prefer those. Won't make this again." - sherri3802
"is there a truck to adding the cream cheese where it doesn't circle? I've the recipe and it tastes great but the crea. cheese juat doesn't fully break down." - seamus m.
"The standard gravy and dressing packs are less than one ounce. Did you use multiple packets? Seems like salt overload!" - mmcannon13
"I tried this today, minus the celery seed, added minced garlic. I only had thinly sliced, boneless, skinless chicken breast on hand, so used that. I loved it, and will try it again using different hot sauces (we have at least a dozen kinds in the pantry b/c of DH). DH enjoyed it, as well as my ... " - miss tinkerbell
