Jalapeno Popper Dip
2 - 8 oz. packages cream cheese
1 cup mayonnaise (do NOT use Miracle Whip!)
1 1/2 cups grated cheese (really any kind works I like to use cheddar)
1 - 4 oz. can chopped green chilies
1/2-1 - 4 oz. can diced jalapeno peppers, reserve small amount of juice drain the rest (my local store does not have cans of diced jalapenos, so I use 10-15 jalapeno slices and chop them and about 1 teaspoon of juice)
Spread into a baking dish. I'm pretty partial to my LeCreuset pie dish that I got as a wedding gift because it is both cute and functional! Top with bread crumbs.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until dip is bubbly and golden brown.
I made this for a party Matt had at work during the holidays and he was calling me before I could even pull out of the parking lot because all the ladies at work wanted the recipe. It is also a favorite with my beach trip girls.
I am preparing for a quick little overnight trip to Dallas tomorrow with all the girls from Matt's side of the family. A very special little girl turned 8 last week and we must celebrate American Girl style! Emily Grace, Matt and I (and of course Belle and Buddy) hope you enjoyed your special day we have enjoyed watching you grow up over the last 8 years! We can't wait to see where life takes you!
