2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup mayonnaise
1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chilies, drained
2 ounces canned diced jalapeno peppers, drained
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese * I used an extra 1/2 cup also
optional--3tbsp. panko breadcrumbs, tortilla chips, baguette sliced thin
Original Directions from allrecipes.com
Stir together cream cheese and mayonnaise in a large bowl until smooth. Stir in green chiles and jalapeno peppers. Pour mixture into a microwave safe serving dish, and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Microwave on High until hot, about 3 minutes.
After reading the many many reviews I altered the directions so I am not sure how it would come out as written. I am sure it would be just good but I thought I would listen to the popper experts on this one. I also think the presentation was probably a bit nicer since it had a golden crust.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir together cream cheese and mayonnaise in a large bowl until smooth. Stir in green chiles and jalapeno peppers and 1/2 cup parm cheese. Pour mixture into a microwave & oven safe safe serving dish. I used a 9 inch pie plate. Sprinkle cheese and bread crumbs on top. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the topping is a golden brown. When you are ready to serve, Microwave on High until hot, about 3 minutes. Serve with tortilla chips & baguette sliced (which I didn't have time to toast but would have been very yummy)
My first bit was REALLY spicy but I think I must have gotten a seed. No one else seemed to think it was overly spicy. It got lots of raves and some requests for the recipe so I consider that a hit. It is so incredibly easy to put together so in my book that makes it a keeper.
