Ingredients

  • 1 pound softened cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 4-ounce can chopped green chilies (drained)
  • 2 ounces canned diced jalapeño peppers (drained)
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs

Instructions

Begin by preheating your oven to 375°F, ensuring it reaches the desired temperature for a perfect bake. In a large mixing bowl, merge the softened cream cheese, mayonnaise, and sour cream, stirring until you achieve a delightfully smooth texture. Add in the chopped green chilies and diced jalapeño peppers, providing a generous mix to ensure that the spicy goodness is evenly distributed throughout the creamy base.

If you’re an aficionado of heat, consider increasing the quantity of jalapeños or perhaps incorporating fresh ones for an additional burst of zest. Once thoroughly mixed, transfer this creamy, spicy mixture into a glass pie pan, spreading evenly.

For the topping, combine the Panko breadcrumbs and grated Parmesan cheese in a bowl, then sprinkle this over your creamy base in the pie pan, ensuring a uniform layer that will bake to a golden, crispy perfection.

Place the pie pan in your preheated oven and allow it to bake for approximately 30 minutes. Alternatively, for a quicker option, microwave the mixture for about 4 minutes, ensuring it is heated throughout. Serve this decadent Jalapeño Popper Spread with vegetables, baguette slices, corn chips, or crackers, and watch as it becomes the star of your snack table!
