S+S chow: jalapeno popper dip

Appetizers are probably our most favorite meal. Yes, we consider apps a meal. Nothing beats a good appetizer. Nothing. With the Super Bowl around the corner our brains are already spinning with ideas on what to make. This jalapeno popper dip made the cut. Stay tuned next week for a few more from our list. Happy weekend! Love, L+L
jalapeno popper dip {via homemade by holman} 
ingredients: 
2 8 oz packages cream cheese  at room temperature
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup roasted red bell peppers, chopped
6 jalapeno peppers, seeded, ribbed and finely diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 T cilantro, finely chopped
2 T lime juice
1 1/2 cups Mexican blend shredded cheese
1 tsp Ancho chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 cup panko bread crumbs

directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese and mayo.  Add bell peppers, jalapenos, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, 1/2 cup shredded cheese, and half of the chili powder and cumin.  Mix well to combine to a uniform mixture.  Spread dip into a baking pan (I used a 1 1/2 quart oval Corningware baking dish but you can use any similar sized baking dish), smoothing into an even layer.  Top with remaining shredded cheese, cover with bread crumbs and sprinkle with remaining chili powder and cumin.  Bake approximately 30 minutes until cheese is hot and bubbly and the breadcrumbs are golden brown.  Serve warm or at room temperature with tortilla chips.
