Chicken Fajita Pita

Cheesy Olive Muffin Melt

Cheesy Olive English Muffins

These cheesy olive English muffin things are so good, mainly because they are a P90x-ed variation on one of the best appetizers I’ve ever had! Typically, I’ve served this at parties on rye bread squares (you could still do that for yourself, by the way, just keep it to 2 slices of rye bread total), …
