Insanely Amazing Jalapeno Dip

on 07/29/2011

My dogs are barkin’ (that means my feet hurt) after having my not-so-petite bulk on them most of the day, so this seemed like a good time to send you a new recipe.  This one is a shout-out to two of my girlfriends who have both had a bad day.  You gotta hate when that happens but inevitably those days do come.  Cue music:  Mama said there’d be days like this, there’d be days like this my mama said.  Mama said, mama said.

This is just the recipe to cheer up the girls because it really describes them:  insanely amazing!  Okay, sometimes just insane but never dips.  I cover that base.  One i’ve known for more years than we care to admit.  In fact, she was one of my bridesmaids way back in another century (feels that way, doesn’t it? ha)  The other i’ve known for probably five years now but they’ve been five jam-packed years.  I can honestly say that if i knew them both another fifty years, it wouldn’t be long enough.  Fortunately i’m planning on spending eternity with them, …JACKPOT!

So, Shanna and Lisa,this is my cyber food-hug to you for a pitiful Friday.  If i could, i’d make it and deliver it in personally along with a real flesh-and-blood hug.  Just know that i’m rootin’ for ya and am so thankful that God intertwined our paths.  They may not cross as much now but that makes it all the sweeter when they do!  LOVE YA!!!  Now go make yourselves some dip and forget about the two-legged dips in your lives.  If there are any.  And i’m not sayin’ there are.  But if….

Insanely Amazing Jalapeno Dip

1 (4 oz) can diced jalapeno peppers

1 cup shredded Parmesan or Mexican blend cheese

1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

1 cup mayonnaise

1 (4 oz) can chopped green chilis

1 round Sourdough loaf *

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine all ingredients (except bread) in a bowl.  Cut off top of Sourdough loaf and hollow out to make a “bowl.”  Spoon dip ingredients into bread bowl and bake for 30 minutes.  Serve with thin-sliced, toasted bread; tortilla chips, etc.

* You can also skip the bread bowl and bake in a small casserole dish.
