This will have your tastebuds popping all over the place!
I needed something fun to take to a pool party
and settled on something savory rather
than something sweet.
Wow, it was creamy and yummy with just as much kick
as you want!
Jalapeno Popper Dip
2 - 8 oz. packages cream cheese
1 1/2 C. Mexican blend cheese
1 C. mayonaise
1/2 C. parmesan cheese
1/2 - 1 - 4 oz can sliced jalapenos
1- 4 oz. can green chilis
1/2 C. panko crumbs
1/4 C. melted butter
1/2 C. Mexican blend cheese
Preheat oven to 375.
In a food processor, blend the cream cheese, cheese, mayo,
parmesan, jalapenos and chilis.
You need to use a food processor to blend the jalapenos and
chilis well. If you are worried about heat, start with
1/2 of the can of jalapenos adding more if desired.
In a small bowl mix the panko crumbs and melted butter.
Place the mixture in a 2 quart oven proof casserole
with Pam. Spread the cheese mix in the dish. Top
with 1/2 C. Mexican cheese and then the crumb mix.
Garnish with half of a fresh jalapeno stuffed
with the cheese mix and topped with the crumbs
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until bubbly around
Serve with chips and a sliced assortment of breads.
It is nice to garnish it with a jalapeno to warn
everyone that this is a spicy dip. We used the full
can of jalapenos and it had plenty of kick. Adjust
the heat as desired.
It was a huge hit! We were going to a BBQ that week
too, so I made it again and the pan was scraped clean.
