Jalapeno Popper Dip

I don't know about you, but jalapeno poppers are one of my favorite snacks.  The only problem is that they can be kind of a pain to make...  Enter this dip.  It has all the flavors, serves a crowd, reheats well, and is so good I could eat it with a spoon all by itself.  I've made this as written below, and I've also made it using reduced fat cream cheese, mayo, and cheddar.  I think I actually prefer the reduced fat version, since it's not so heavy as to turn quickly into a meal substitute!!  Either way, this dip is delish, and your guests, guys and gals alike, will love it!!

2 8-ounce packages cream cheese
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 4-ounce can chopped green chilies
4-ounce can diced jalape├▒os
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, divided
1/2 cups Panko
1 tablespoon olive oil
Fritos and chopped veggies, for dipping

Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese, mayonnaise, cheddar, chilies, peppers and 1/4 cup Parmesan until blended. Spoon into an ungreased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish.

In a small bowl, combine the panko, oil and remaining Parmesan. Sprinkle over cheese mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 20-25 min. or until golden brown.

Serve hot, with Fritos and veggies for dipping!
