Not a fan of the corn chips in this. Maybe add a little more bacon. I love bacon. If you do want the chips, set them out and let people add what they want. If you have some left or it takes a while before it gets all eaten, the chips will get soggy.

I made this recipe twice, the second time leaving out the olives, and I liked it better made the second way. The slight tang of the italian dressing combines surprisingly well with the picante sauce and adds nicely to the crunch of the bacon. I like it better without the olives, my own personal taste it actually is quite good either way. And very simple to make, very easy to whip up quickly!

Not a rating but a comment. Would like to see ratings on the recipe and not coulda, woulda, shoulda. Not commenting on your lifestyle, food no no's etc. Alternative recipes are welcomed to me but please rate the recipe for taste etc. "As Is".

As always, some good ideas in these recipes...but EVERYTHING is much better (andmuch better for you!) MADE FRESH. Try this with your own home-made vinaigrette, your own home-made salsa -- both VERY easy and quick for even the most kitchen-phobic home cooks! -- and either skip the chips (loaded with fat, sodium,and "empty" carbs), or diligently search for baked-chip alternatives. With these modifications: DELISH!
