  • 2 8- ounce packages cream cheese (at room temperature, light or regular)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (light or regular)
  • 1/2 cup roasted red bell peppers (chopped)
  • 6 jalapeno peppers (seeded, ribbed and finely diced)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro (finely chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 1/2 cups Mexican blend shredded cheese (divided)
  • 1 teaspoon Ancho chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs (regular or gluten free)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • 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 dish, smoothing into an even layer. (I used an 11 x 7-inch dish)
  • 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, crackers, or veggies.
