Fantastic Jalapeno Pepper Dip

Submitted by Shirlee, SC

Fantastic Jalapeno Pepper Dip is very addictive!

Now, I am the first person to say I don't even like jalapeno peppers!!!

But I love this dip!

I found a version of this recipe, and thought I would try it even though I personally don't like them... but family and friends do!

I tweaked the recipe 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!

Fantastic Jalapeno Pepper
Dip Recipe

  • 2- 8 oz packages of Cream Cheese softened (not fat free!)

  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise (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

  • 2 oz. chopped jalapenos (I use jarred sliced)

  • 2/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs

In medium mixing bowl, mix softened cream cheese, mayonnaise, cheese, garlic powder and 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 put this in a small "dip" crock pot.

Layer cream cheese mixture and bread crumbs the same way and put on low.

You have to watch it after it is heated through.

In a crock pot it has a tendency to overcook after a while.

This Fantastic Jalapeno Pepper Dip can be served with white tortilla chips, pretzels or crackers of your choice.

NOTE: This is very good dipped with vegetable sticks or served spooned over a baked white potato or roasted asparagus spears.
