Low Fat Chicken & Spinach Enchiladas Recipe with Chili Lime Sour Cream

 Olives from Spain 2

My husband was an olive lover when I met him. He liked all kinds of olives except those with any sort of blue cheese in them. When we first traveled to Europe, we discovered olives from Spain. The olive stands at every open air market we calling us and I started trying olives. I had previously thought that all olives were the same and I was definitely mistaken.

I began to discover the complex flavors of olives from Spain.
