  • 2 (8 ounce) packages Neufchatel cheese, softened

  • 1 cup mayonnaise

  • ½ cup shredded Cheddar cheese

  • ½ cup chopped jalapeno pepper

  • ¼ cup canned chopped green chiles

  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • ½ cup bread crumbs


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Beat Neufchatel cheese, mayonnaise, Cheddar cheese, jalapeno pepper, and green chiles together in a large bowl until evenly mixed; spread into a 2-quart casserole dish. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the top of the mixture; top with bread crumbs.

  3. Bake in preheated oven until lightly browned around the edges, 25 to 30 minutes.

Cook's Note:

I use jalapeno peppers a lot, so I take a 16-ounce can of jalapeno peppers, carrots, and onions, cut the tops off the jalapeno peppers, and finely chopped them in the food processor. Keeping them handy in the refrigerator when I'm cooking saves a lot of time.
