Treat Tuesday #29...


*I know the Super Bowl is here and gone.

*Here is a tasty treat to have during any type of gathering.

*One of my favorite things is a cracker spread!  

2 (8 ounce) packages of cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup mayo

1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese (half Monterrey Jack, half Cheddar)
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chillies
1 (4 ounce) can diced jalapenos
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese (yes another 1/2 cup)
1/2 stick of butter, melted


*Combine the first 6 ingredients in a mixer or food processor and blend until smooth.

*You do NOT need to drain the cans of chillies or jalapenos.

*Spread the dip into a greased casserole dish.

*We used a large pie plate.

*In a bowl, combine the panko breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese and melted butter.

*Sprinkle crumb mixture evenly over the dip and bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for about 20 minutes.

*You want the top to get browned and the dip to be heated through and bubble gently on the edges.

*You do NOT want to over-bake this dip.

*The mayo will begin to separate and leave you with a greasy mess.
