This recipe has been a favorite in my family for years. Serve with tortilla chips. It's a huge crowd pleaser -- I have seen people drop the chips and grab a spoon to eat it.

The flavor was pretty good but I thought the garlic salt on top of the garlic was a little overkill. I would cut the garlic salt next time. But the thing that ruined it for me was that after it sat for a few minutes the liquid grease pooled on top of the cheese...a lot of it. Even after I tried pouring it off it was still there and every time I took a bite it was greasy. I don't know if substituting cream cheese for mayo would help or using a non-fat mayo but I wouldn't make the recipe as is again. Read More

Loved it! I added scallions and an extra jalepeno and next time I might skip the olives. Read More

This is very similar to the cheese dip I have been making. People were amazed at the ingredients only being 4 items... But.. it went perfect with Ritz crackers to (top it off).... I usually use the bagged-grated (moz cheedar jack) type cheeses. I then used onion mayo and canned jalepeno per taste. I never baked it. Left it in the refrigerator for several hours to let the mixture blend. I took it to school the next day in a bowl and serve it with Ritz crackers.. its delicious!!!When I served it...within 1.5hrs..it was gone. Thats about the fastest recipe to disappear I have made in my 12years. I'll try to bake it next time..interesting. thanks for sharing. Read More

I have to give this 5 stars because it was so easy to make and everyone loved it. I did omit the olives because most in our family don't like them and it was still great. Read More

This was pretty good. My husband loved it. It took longer than 20 minutes for the edges to turn golden. The dip wasn't as smooth as I was expecting. Next time I will try leaving it in the oven longer. Overall it had a good flavor. It was quick and easy too. Read More

I added tomatoes to add a color and taste and did diced green peppers rather than jalapenos. Excellent but one word of caution: I attempted to make this a one-pot deal. NO CAN DO! You must SHRED the mozzarella and bake as directed. If you do like I did the melting will be uneven and you will eventually cook the water out of the mozzarella and end up with one big cheese lump surrounded by water and mayo mixture. Overall taste superb but presentation severely lacking due only to my not following the directions by trying to simmer it. Read More

I've made this three times and everyone has been asking me for the recipe. I made it for my last party and it was gone in no time. I added a little chopped onion just for my own taste. Thanks for the recipe. Read More
