A great meal idea for a party or picnic. I suggest using HALF the cream cheese so that it doesn't taste so cream cheesy. The wider the loaf of bread, the better!

  • Cut the top off the bread loaf, keeping in one piece, and reserve for later use. Hollow out the loaf to form an area for the filling. Chop the removed bread for dipping.

  • Mix Cheddar cheese, ham, sour cream, cream cheese, green onions, green chile peppers, and jalapeno peppers in a bowl; spoon into the hollowed bread loaf. Return the top to the bread and wrap loaf with 2 pieces aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until filling is cooked through and bubbling, about 1 hour 20 minutes.

This is a wonderful dip that can be served in bread or ina small crock pot if you can't find round bread. I've made this dip for years with a few minor changes and someone always wants the recipe. I omit the jalapenos and use a small or large can of diced green chilies. I substitute 5 slices of pastrami diced in place of ham to give it more flavor. Another great addition is a can or jar of chopped artichoke hearts either marinated or regular. Make sure you use a few good Worcestershire shakes as it makes the dip. Read More

It was a hit! I used Chicken instead of ham. Used what I had. :-) Skillet sautéed the 2 large chicken breast using Olive oil and a little butter for browning. Seasoned chicken with salt and pepper, garlic powder. Read More
