Bubbly, Happy Goodness in a Cheesy Jalapeno Dip

Bubbly, Happy Goodness in a Cheesy Jalapeno Dip #recipe

I happen to work with some amazing and creative people who love to eat. After a particularly hard month, some clever folks started Dip Day. It started small and over the last nine years, has grown.

Dip day

It is a magnificent day of sweet and savory delights that make a visit to the gym a necessity. And, it is worth it.

I love hot and spicy. As I headed to the grocery store I kept in mind the jalapenos I had in my fridge. I was originally going to make a Tastefully Simple dip, but could not stop thinking of a recipe I saw on yummly. Something with cream cheese and hot sauce.

What I came up with was so much better than I imagined. Hot, spicy, and cheesy. No hot sauce, though.

My husband doubted my love of heat until he made me a jambalaya that made him cry. I added hot sauce and thanked him for a fantastic dinner.

Giant Eagle has a new shredded cheese - Chipotle Shredded Cheese. It gave the dish a nice smoky taste to compliment the chilies and jalapenos.

I baked the dish the night before and just microwaved it when it was time to serve. I liked it cold, but next time I may make it in a crockpot to keep it hot and bubbly.

This dip is so tasty. I really could have eaten this all on my own. It was hard to share it.
