Recipe: Spicy Olive Spread

I brought home a can of jalapeno infused olives and Jon immediately had an idea for a recipe.
I gathered the ingredients, made a few alterations and voila!  This spread was quite tasty. If you can't get the jalapeno infused olives, just add a few jalapeno slices to the puree.  I served them with black bean tortilla chips, but any chip or cracker would work well.

4 oz can black olives infused with jalapenos (or 3 - 5 jalapeno slices, additional)
additional jalapenos to taste
8 oz cream cheese
3 T grated Parmesan cheese or Romano
2 cloves garlic, minced

In a food processor, puree olives, jalapenos and garlic.  Pulse a few seconds until uniform in size.  Add cream cheese and pulse until smooth.  Add grated cheese.  Pulse until combined.
Place into a container and refrigerate until ready to serve.
