Easy Jalapeno Dip

This weekend I felt like having a spicy snack so I made individual jalapeno dips.  These have a little kick so if you like things on the mild side, reduce the jalapenos by 1/2.  These can be put together in about 15 minutes.

Ingredients for Jalapeno Dip

This wonderful dip just takes a few ingredients.

Baked Jalapeno Dip Ingredients - cheese, mayonnaise, cream cheese, jalapenos, green chilis

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:

  1. Shred the cheese and chop the jalapenos.
  2. Mix the first 4 ingredients together.
  3. Pour into an oven-safe dish.
  4. Bak in the oven until bubbly.
