Fantastic Jalapeno Pepper Dip
Now I am the FIRST person to say I don't even LIKE jalapeno peppers!!! But I love this dip, and it is VERY VERY addicting!!! I found a version of this recipe online, and thought I would try it-even though I personally don't even like Jalapeno peppers-but family & friends do. I tweaked it a bit, and after the first batch, it was a TOTAL hit with everyone! I used to make it for every party at my work-never being an option to not bring it!
2- 8 oz packages of Cream Cheese softened (NOT fat free!)
3/4 cup Mayonaise (not salad dressing)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
pinch of garlic powder
pinch of black pepper
1- 4oz can of green chilies
2oz of chopped jalapenos ( I use jared sliced)
2/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
In medium mixing bowl, mix softened cream cheese, mayonnaise, cheese & garlic powder & pepper. Blend well, add can of green chilies and jalapenos. (Jalapenos can be adjusted to your taste- less or more) Spread in 9 or 10 inch pie plate, cover with bread crumbs and bake till heated through in a 350 degree oven (usually 20-30 minutes). You can also microwave this, but you don't get the same texture.
I have also but this in a small "dip" crock pot (layer cream cheese mixture and bread crumbs the same way) and but on low. (But you have to watch it after it is heated through) In a crock pot it has a tendency to overcook it after a while)
This can be served with white tortilla chips, pretzels or anything!
