    Whole olives seems a bit much especially with that cheese dip, but a nice tapenade might be good on a hot dog if you used it like relish, maybe with some spicy English mustard…

      That’s a good idea. A salsa con queso dip can actually be good on a hot dog, but I don’t think olives would go with it. Maybe a one-or-the-other situation.

      This doesn’t seem that bad. At least they didn’t use the abominations that are black “olives”. Greek/kalamata has a better flavor but green aren’t bad.

      I’m not sure olives should ever be paired with any cheese except feta (or its derivatives). I’m also not sure they should be near any sausages that aren’t of Italian or other Mediterranean provenance either.

      Mustard also seems risky but might work with the right one.

      If you absolutely must try it, perhaps an Italian sausage, olive tapenade, and some bell peppers and onions could possibly work.

          I mean, pretty much everyone is guilty of those at one point or another, myself included.

          The way I see it, the whole point of this group is to joke about the silly mistakes of others in order to make ourselves feel better about our own.

          I don’t eat nachos all that often so it’s been a long time but I got a feeling you might be right.

          Green ones, though? Whole? IDK

        Cheese and olives is a pretty classic combo? The acidity and brine helps cut through the fattyness of the cheese. You see it in all sorts of antipasto platters. Not sure about the hotdog though.

          Sure, but like I said, it’s usually some sort of Mediterranean fresh milk cheese like feta, not processed slop like this stuff.

          In fact, I think fresh Mexican queso would probably work just fine. Still not sure about that hot dog however.

        Yeah, I would never use that queso dip with anything with olives lol feta does sound good through! I was thinking English mustard because you don’t really need to use a lot of it and it’s more of a good spicy flavor without the strong vinegar taste most mustard has

        I have a pretty well curated list of things that I put out for wine and cheese night as a sort of madcap charcuterie board. I’ve actually found that a popular combination is andouille sausage, green olive, and any sweet flavor. I’d even gamble that any savory meat might work so long as the portions are correct.

    Jalapeños instead of olives and this would be pretty good.

    I applaud the willingness to experiment at the same time I laugh at what that did to their guts.

      I mean, that’s the best part about food crimes, that the ones who commit them are generally also the first to pay the price for them.

      Unless there’s unwilling participants involved in the experiment of course, but I’m guessing those don’t end up having photographic evidence posted on the Internet.

    Honestly, if you replaced those olives with pepper slices, and that “Queso” with something that looked slightly less artificial than the hotdog its covering, that might not be so bad.

      I agree that the main issue here is the olives. The rest can certainly be made work with the right ingredients.

      Just substitute jalapeños instead and we can still be friends.

      If I’m being honest, that Aldi cheese dip is unreasonably good for what it is. I remember trying the Pace one when I was a teen and still feeling like my pallet was too refined for that crap, but the Aldi one tastes better than some recipes I’ve tried.

      You haven’t lived until you’ve plopped a few Spanish Manzanilla olives on one of those bad boys.
