Preheat broiler. Slice peppers in half lengthwise, core and seed. Lay pieces skin side up in a shallow broiling pan and place in broiler 3 inches below heat. Broil peppers until skin blisters and turns black. Remove peppers to a plastic bag and close it; let steam 15 minutes. When cool enough to handle, peel off skin.
Meanwhile, break bread into pieces in a small bowl; add milk and soak 10 minutes. Combine bread, peppers, pitted olives, and garlic in a food processor and process on pulse for about 4 seconds. Add oil, lemon juice, and TABASCO® Sauce, and pulse 3 seconds longer. Spoon dip into a serving bowl, cover, and let stand at least 30 minutes to blend flavors. Garnish with sliced olives.
Makes 1 1/4 cups.
