Makes 6 serving
NOTE: I doubled this recipe using only one can of olives since we aren't big on olives here.
The original recipe calls for a taco blend shredded cheese but I used a marble and it was great.
I used about 2 cups of frozen corn instead of the can, so I added about half a cup of water on top of the 2 cups called for.

I got this recipe from the Best Loved Brand Name Recipes. I did tweak it a bit though (see note)
