This trendy appetizer tastes like a jalapeno popper turned inside out, mildly spicy slices of jalapeno smothered in a cheese blend and topped with crispy golden panko, a true family favorite with almost no effort.
1- 8 oz pkg of Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 c. Mayo
1/2 c. Chopped Green Chilis (2 oz)
1/3 c. Sliced (Pickled) Jalapenos
1/4 c. Colby jack cheese, shredded
1/4 c. Cheddar Cheese, Shredded
1/4 c. Parmesan Cheese, shredded
1/2 c. Panko Bread Crumbs
In a small bowl combine the cream cheese and mayo until smooth, add the chilis, jalapenos, and cheeses, mixing well. Spread the dip into ramekins and then sprinkle with panko.
Bake at 375F for 18-25 minutes or until golden brown.
Chef’s Note: If you would prefer to make a low-fat version, you can easily swap the cream cheese for low-fat or neufchatel cheese & substitute the mayo with Low-fat mayo.
