Pearls Olives Campaign & Mini Tex-Mex Bean Dip ♥

I was so happy to be approached by Pearls Olives for their new campaign on Pearls to go! 

America's favorite olive just got easier than ever to enjoy. Delicious California-grown large pitted black ripe olives are perfect for lunchboxes, gym bags, desk drawers, as well as great for afterschool or an after-sports group snack. Always ready-to-go in single-serve, liquid-free, easy-to-open cups, they are a great choice for a tasty wholesome snack.

These easy-to-open cups stay fresh and tightly sealed until you're ready to use them--so that you can quickly enjoy a snack, (keep in a desk drawer), or just punch up the flavor profile of any dish without having to find a can opener or storage container. With 100 calories per 1.4 ounce cup, they come four cups to a package. Below I have listed a recipe for easy on the go mini taco dip cups~ ♥

Here is a little background on Pearls Olives....

Musco Family Olive Co. is a privately held family business. Rooted in expertise from the olive groves of Italy and built over many generations of active family involvement, Musco has become the leading supplier of table olives in America.

 From the time he was a young child in Italy, Nicolo Musco worked in his family's merchant business, peddling olives, cheese, and other food from village to village on his donkey-driven cart. Nicolo started his American success story in 1922, moving from Italy to New York to start an Italian food distributorship. Nicolo's entrepreneurial spirit, combined with a heritage that spans back many generations as a merchant of Italian food products, led him to seek his fortune in the olive groves of California..

Today, this rich heritage and expertise endures at Musco Family Olive Co. which honors its founder, Nicolo Musco, by continuing his philosophy of "making a good thing even better." Over 500 growers, 350 employees, and countless vendors and business partners are part of the Musco family tree. It is in this spirit of family that we are known as the Musco Family Olive Co.
