This is my favorite dip recipe! Once we tried this, we made it over, and over, and over again. If I had to compare it to something, I'd say it's similar to an artichoke dip.
Be sure to serve with a thick, soft bread instead of the traditional chips.
1pkg. (8 oz) cream cheese
1 1/4 c. shredded monterey jack cheese, divided
1 can (4 oz) chopped green chiles, drained
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/8 tsp. crushed red pepper
1/8 tsp. ground chili powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
Bread for dipping
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Butter a 3 cup baking dish. Beat cream cheese until smooth.
Stir in 1 cup shredded cheese and rest of the ingredients until just combined.
Spread into baking dish. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top. Bake 20-25 min. or until hot and bubbly.
