Chicken jalapeno dip

This delicious Mexican dip is flavorful, spicy and cheesy, my three favorite ways to describe food. I love that it is unique and familiar all at once. I am marking this as a new favorite for parties. Or, just for those indulgent days when my husband and I decide to enjoy a margarita and a spicy, gooey treat. We are due for one of those soon.


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, combine:

2 8-oz. packages cream cheese

1/3 cup skim milk

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1 red bell pepper, chopped

3 jalapeno peppers, chopped (give or take, depending how much you like for your mouth to burn)

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Pull and coarsely shred the meat from 1 Rotisserie chicken, discarding the skin and bones. Add the chicken meat to the mixture and stir until combined. Transfer the mixture to a medium-sized, greased baking dish.

Top with 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.

Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.

Serve with chips and pita bread. Have a cold margarita handy!

I love ooey gooey dips. They are so much more satisfying than the kind that politely stays on your chip. This one sounds great!
