Ingredients for Jalapeno Dip
This wonderful dip just takes a few ingredients.
Cream Cheese - Use the whipped variety in a tub. I used a lower fat variety and it worked great.
Mayonnaise - Use your favorite brand.
Jalapeño peppers - Use the canned, presliced variety.
Green Chili - again I use canned. Generic brands work great.
Parmesan Cheese - Shred it yourself, it tastes so much better than pre-shredded cheese.
How to Make Jalapeño Cream Cheese Dip
The full directions are in the recipe card, but the main steps are:
- Shred the cheese and chop the jalapenos.
- Mix the first 4 ingredients together.
- Pour into an oven-safe dish.
- Bak in the oven until bubbly.

Ooh yum, sounds great! I am a huge wimp when it comes to spicy things; somehow I've managed to go all 25 years of my life without really ever even trying anything spicy, and of course the downside now is that even the mildest things taste SUPER spicy to me because I'm not used to any spice. Oops. But this would probably be good without the jalapenos, my hubs can have mine cuz he really likes spicy things 🙂 Thanks for sharing at The Fun In Functional!
LOL Jessi! The trick is to gradually add spice in your life (or not). Thanks for stopping by!
This sounds delicious and it looks so cute in the dish. I definitely want the spicier version.
