Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • 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.

  • 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.

J.Storm - No it is not the same thing. Neufchatel tates extremely similar to cream cheese however is has 1/3 less fat that cream cheese. REAL (see also - French) Neufchatel is made with milk only while the American version you find in grocery stores is generally made with milk and cream. As far as the recipe goes - I've been making this dip for a long time. As written I give this recipe 3 stars as it is very good. I always add some seasoning such as garlic or onion powder white pepper and even a dash of Worchestershire sauce if I'm feeling really adventurous. Read More

I'm pregnant and crave jalapeno poppers nonstop. Unfortunately I only eat all natural foods so going and getting some at Sonic wasn't an option. I didn't have parmesan cheese on hand and I made it without it. Baked at 400 degrees until heated through. This dip saved my life today! I get all natural mayo at Trader Joes. It exists! Read More

This is always a party favorite. I actually have only made this with cream cheese and I may try it with the Neufchâtel because it is very rich anyway. It's a very flexible recipe. You can use different cheese and can add bacon which is delicious of course. Read More

Nothing fancy but oh so good! Ps. I had been using regular cream cheese for a while and today I used the Neufchatel which took it to a whole new level! Read More
