this dip has everything there is to love about a jalapeno popper all wrapped up in one delicious dish.the husband & i brought this to two parties in a week’s time & people hovered until the dish was empty each time. & maybe even licked clean.
i won’t name names. you know who you are.
& with plenty of holiday get togethers in the near future, not to mention football & basketball games to watch, there are plenty of occasions for you to grab some tortilla chips, whip this up & watch it quickly disappear!

1 cup mayonnaise
1 4oz can chopped green chiles, undrained

2. in a small bowl (or cutting board, paper towel, paper plate where you grated your parmesan…) mix together panko & parmesan. sprinkle evenly on top of the cream cheese mixture. place in the oven & bake for 25-30 minutes, until the topping is nice & golden brown. serve while hot & watch your friends flock & devour.
