There’s never a bad time for dip! Hot or cold, the salt and crunch of the chips paired with a cream cheese mixture is always a welcome treat in our household.
Many aren’t having parties right now, but that doesn’t mean we can’t create that party like atmosphere that we’re all missing.
This dip with green chiles has all the flavor of the chiles with little to no heat. It’s easy to make, easy to serve and easy to eat. That’s my kind of recipe.
And if I’m being honest, I only “watch” sports for the snacks. (I save all my Candy Crush playing on my iPad for game day).
How to make Green Chile Dip

Don’t wait until football season to make this dip. The holidays are a great time to try this easy hot dip.
I just love the flavor of green chiles. And buying them in the can means that all of the work is done for you.
If you want to add some heat, you can swap out one can for a can of diced jalapenos. My face is not cute when I eat hot things so I never make it this way.
When all of this comes together, it makes a delicious dish of dip.
What to serve with the dip
Other dipping options include celery sticks, carrot sticks, and breadsticks.
If you’re serving this Green Chile Dip recipe during a party you can place it in the center of a platter with veggie sticks and tortilla chips around the outer edge.
To a large mixing bowl, add the softened cream cheese, mayonnaise, garlic powder, salt, cumin, cheddar and parmesan cheese. Mix well.
Put the cream cheese mixture into a baking dish and bake in a 350-degree oven for 20 minutes.
In a dip emergency you could totally dig into it now. It won’t be satisfying the way a warm, cheesy dip can be. But it’d work.
I’m not saying that a pizza bite is a great dipper idea for this green chile goodness. But I’m not saying it’s not…
Obviously you’ll want to serve this as soon as you can once it’s out of the oven. The warmer the oozier.
But it’s easy to reheat (especially in a dish of this size) in the microwave as needed.
Using 2 cans of the diced green chiles ensures that every bite is full of them! YUM!
How to store leftovers
While there may not be much left for leftovers, you can store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to five days. It will last for about one month in the freezer.
But if you’re like me and know there is dip in the house, you won’t need it to last a month.
Creamy, cheesy and delicious, this easy hot dip recipe is one that will help get you through any stress eating situation that comes up as we bring 2020 to a close.
