Crack Cheese Dip

14 Aug

Ingredients:

1 8 oz package cream cheese
2 cups grated cheddar cheese or grated jalapeno jack
1 cup mayonnaise
1 small purple onion or green onion if you prefer

Directions:

1. Combine all ingredients in a 9″ baking dish
2. Bake at 350  for 20 minutes or until lightly browned

I like to serve this with tortilla chips, but you can use Wheat Thins or Fritos if you like.

Also if you want to add a little kick to it, add some finely chopped jalapeno to it. Add as much or as little as you like. I usually use about 4-6  slices of jalapenos out of the jar.

Another variation is to add 1 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese and 1 cup finely shredded mozzarella cheese instead of the 2 cups cheddar.
