Ortega Cheese Dip

I make a spicy spinach and artichoke dip at just about every get together. My brats don't appreciate it like the guys (yes I said guys) that man the BBQ pit. They are down right protective of the dip. I don't think they know that there are vegetables in it. But this recipe is not for spicy spinach and artichoke dip. Nope! I came about this dip from making Ortega Chili Cheese Bread which is amazing and again the men hog it all. They liked it so much that I made more of the topping but I was out of the bread it belonged on so I served it with tortilla chips. Oh my! Happy men! Protective men! Am I ever going to learn to keep half of it in the house-away from the men? Probably not!

Ortega Cheese Dip
1 cans of Ortega HOT Chilis
2 stalks Green Onions (scallions) sliced
½ cups Mayonnaise
2 cups Monterrey Jack Cheese, Grated
1 cube of cream cheese

Mix all ingredients and put in an oven safe dish.

Bake in a preheated 350 oven for 30 minutes or until bubbly. Serve with tortilla chips or bread.

This dip could be made in the crock pot. Try it when you are crunched for time. Set it on low. Enjoy!

Looks really good. I have a weakness for cheesy dips! Is this one particularly spicy?

Not too spicy but you could substitute the Hot Ortega chilis for regular ortega chilis. Taste the dip before you bake it. If the flavor is strong enough then bake it. But personally I would use two can of regular chilis. But I like the flavor of chilis. Lol
