Jalapeño Popper Dip
A long, long time ago, Katie from The Little Thing Blog turned me onto this one. Since then I've made it a billion times! Katie and I like to think we are “Appetizer Queens” because we make them all the time and constantly swap recipes. We both prefer appetizers over a regular meal anytime! This dip tastes just like the creamy center of a jalapeño popper.
2 (8-ounce) packages of cream cheese, softened
1 cup mayonnaise
1 (4-ounce) can chopped green chilies, drained
1 (2-ounce) can diced jalapeno peppers, drained
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Mix together the cream cheese and mayonnaise in a large bowl until smooth. Stir in green chilies, Parmesan cheese and jalapeno peppers. Pour mixture into a microwave safe serving dish. Microwave until hot, about 3 minutes. Serve with tortilla chips or Fritos Scoops. (Note: I prefer to bake it at 350º for 20 minutes instead of microwaving.)
