Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Place cream cheese and Monterey Jack cheese in top of a double boiler over simmering water. Stir frequently, scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching, until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a baking pan.

  • Mix bacon, green salsa, green onions, and jalapeno peppers in with the cheese.

  • Bake dip in the preheated oven until warm and bubbly, 10 to 12 minutes.

Cook's Note:

For Halloween, spoon dip into a hollowed-out pumpkin and heat in oven at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) until bubbly.

Reduced-fat cream cheese may be substituted for regular cream cheese, if desired.

Cheese may be melted in the microwave instead of a double boiler. Finish dip in a slow cooker instead of the oven, if preferred.
