I love jalapeno poppers. But I don't love cutting, de-seeding and stuffing them. This dip is so quick to throw together and it's delicious. Would be the perfect for the Big Game! You can easily half the recipe - I always do. It's the perfect amount for us. But, if you have a big crowd to feed you should stick with the recipe amounts. You can substitute the canned jalapenos with fresh jalapenos. I've always done it that way but lately I have developed a sensitivity to jalapenos and my hands burn for a couple of days. Not worth it at all! So, now I stick to the canned.
Total Time: 10 minutes, plus 20 minutes to bake.

- 2 (8 oz) pkgs cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (The original recipe calls for shredded Mexican blend cheese)
- 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
- 1 (4 oz) can can chopped green chiles
- 1 (4 oz) can chopped jalapenos
- Topping (optional)
- 1 panko bread crumbs
- 1/2 cup stick butter, melted
- 1/2 parmesan cheese
- In a mixing bowl, blend the first 6 ingredients til blended well. (The original recipe says to put the first 6 ingredients in a food processor and process 'til smooth. But, I was living dangerously tonight and didn't feel like washing the food processor! Do whatever makes you happy).
- Spread the dip into a greased 2-quart casserole dish.
- Optional topping step: Mix breadcrumbs, parmesan and butter. Sprinkle over dip. (I don't add the topping because my family does not like it)
- Bake at 375 degrees F for 20 minutes, until top is browned and dip is bubbling around the edges.
- Serve with chips or crackers.....or on top of an old shoe! (Just kidding about that last part. It's just so good!)

My mouth is watering as I am looking at this dip! One of my favorite foods in the whole stinkin' world is jalapeno poppers. I will definitely be making this soon!
Jalapeno poppers can be expensive to purchase in the store. This dip is a great tasting alternative and much cheaper. It also makes a great gift for someone who enjoys spicy food.
- 2 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 (4 oz.) can chopped green chilies,drained
- 2 oz. diced jalapeno peppers (drain if using canned or jarred peppers)
- 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese (fresh is best)
Stir together softened cream cheese and mayonnaise in a large bowl until smooth. Stir in green chilies and jalapeno peppers. Pour mixture into a microwave safe serving dish, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Microwave on high until hot, about 3 minutes. It is also good served cold. Serve with crackers, chips, or sliced sourdough baguettes.
