How to make Green Chile Dip
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.
