I just love the flavor of green chiles. And buying them in the can means that all of the work is done for you. Hatch is a well-known brand that tastes delicious! But you can use any kind of diced green chile you can find at the store.

Cream cheese and mayonnaise make a delicious base. With cumin and garlic powder and salt, you get a well-rounded flavor that you’ll really enjoy.

The cheddar and parmesan cheese take this to the next level of comfort and flavor.

When all of this comes together, it makes a delicious dish of dip.
