This is such a great appetizer to have while watching football. I made this when my brother and sister-in-law came over to watch a Bears game a few weeks ago.
This was a huge hit and everyone definitely enjoyed it. This dip is spicy, cheesy, and delicious served with tortilla chips and baguette slices. I must warn you, this dip definitely has a kick to it so make sure you have something to drink by you!
Jalapeño Popper Dip
2 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup mayonnaise
1 (4 oz.) can chopped green chiles, drained
1 (4 oz.) can diced jalapeño peppers, drained
½ cup shredded Mexican style cheese
½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup Panko breadcrumbs
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat the oven to 375˚ F. In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, mayonnaise, green chiles, jalapeños, and shredded cheeses. Mix thoroughly with a spoon or spatula until smooth and evenly combined. Spread the mixture into a baking dish (9 x 9).
In a second bowl, combine the Panko and Parmesan and stir with a fork until combined. Sprinkle over the cream cheese mixture in the baking dish. Spray lightly with cooking spray. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the mixture is hot and the topping is golden. Serve warm with baguette slices, tortilla chips, vegetables, etc. as desired.
