Cream Cheese Jalapeno Dip

Rated as 4.17 out of 5 Stars

"This is a cream cheese dip with a spicy kick. I make a green salsa using tomatillos in the summer, but good tomatillos are hard to find in the winter so I decided to try the same ingredients with a cream cheese base instead. I served it at my Christmas party this year and it was a huge hit; I should have made more! Serve with warm tortilla chips."

YUMMY

I used this dip as a filler for 6 10" tortillas. I used full fat cream cheese and made sure to remove the juice from the tomato. My cilantro amount was probably around a cup. After rolling th...

Delicious dip. Knowing that cilantro comes in different size bunches I measured 1 cup minced. Perfect balance of flavors. This will be made often here. Thank you hawkika3.
