Jalapeno Popper Spread

We made this for the Superbowl and all voted that it was a keeper.  I got the recipe from  I like spreading it on small pieces of sourdough baguettes but it tastes really good on crackers and chips.  We used any leftover dip to put on top of grilled steaks or porkchops before sticking them under a broiler for just a minute.  Heaven.

Jalapeno Popper Spread

2 8-oz. packages cream cheese, softened
1 c. mayonnaise  DON’T use Miracle Whip
1 c. Parmesan cheese
2 cloves garlic, pressed or finely minced
1 4-oz. can fire roasted green chilies
1/4 of a 4-oz. can diced jalapeno peppers*, drained
8oz bacon, cooked and crumbled

Preheat oven to 350. If using bacon, reserve 2-3 Tbs and sprinkle on top of dip before baking.  In a food processor or mixer combine cream cheese, mayo, parmesan, and garlic and mix until smooth.  Add jalapenons and green chilies.  Stir in bacon.  Spread dip into a 9″ pie plate or a small baking dish.  Sprinkle with remaining bacon.  Bake for 20-25 minutes or until dip is bubbly and golden brown.
