   A pleasant change from guacamole, this dip has the
   color and taste to compliment crudites, toasted pita
   bread triangles, or crisp crackers.
   ~------------------------------------------------------
   ~----------------- Preheat the broiler.  Slice the
   peppers in half lengthwise, and core and seed.  Lay
   the pieces skin side up in a shallow broiling pan and
   set the pan 3 inches below the heat.  Broil the
   peppers until the skin blisters and turns black.
   Remove the peppers to a plastic bag and close it; let
   them steam for 15 minutes.  When they are cool enough
   to handle, peel off the skin.  Meanwhile, break the
   bread into a small bowl, add the milk, and soak for 10
   minutes.
   
   Combine the bread, peppers, olives and garlic in a
   food processor and process with a pulsing motion for
   about 4 seconds.  Add the oil, lemon juice and Tabasco
   sauce, pulse for 3 seconds longer.  Spoon the dip into
   a serving bowl, cover and let stand at least 30
   minutes to blend the flavors. Garnish with sliced
   olives.  From: The Tabasco Cookbook.  Typed by Syd
