Christmas Recipe Week - Monday Appetizers

This week on Mysteries and Margaritas, we decided to do something different. Since a lot of you will still be enjoying family and the holidays instead of surfing the Internet and reading blogs, we're going to save our words of wisdom and print recipes all week and hope you'll join in and post your favorite ones.

Today's offering is Appetizers, and mine will be Jalapeno Poppers. I have to admit this came from my friend, Jane, but as everyone who knows me can attest to, once I have a recipe in my hands, it becomes mine and fabulous to boot. So this one is called:


2 (8 ounces) cream cheese softened
1 cup of Mayo (not Miracle Whip)
1 cup of Mexican blend grated cheese
2 (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
2 (4 ounces) chopped jalapeno peppers (I only used one)
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese (in bag not can)

4 Tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup Panko bread crumbs
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese

Mix first six ingredients in a food processor
Pour into 9X13 baking dish

Mix the melted butter with the other two ingredients and spread on top the batter.

Bake at 375 degrees for 30-45 minutes until cheese is bubbly. Eat with crackers or tortilla chips.

This is so yummy! Now let me hear about your favorites.

Liz, I agree. 2 (4 ounces) jalapeno peppers would be enough for me, if I had a food processor or even a blender.

Oops. my bad. I meant 1 jalapeno not 2

I'm not a fan of jalapeno peppers, but I am a fan of easy and delicious, so I plan to give this one a try. :)

I'm not a cook, so I don't have any recipes to share. LOL That's why I'm here reading everyone else's. :)
