GREEN CHILE PARMESAN DIP with TOMATOES {DEL MONTE!}

I’ve had this idea for a green chile dip for a few weeks now. Del Monte contacted me, asking me if I’d like to try their Tomatoes with Green Chiles and I instantly said- YES! The idea kept morphing in my head until I finally decided just to tinker around in my kitchen until it worked. Thankfully, it really didn’t take long at all and the result is this killer dip! I served it with thin slices of sour dough baguette. Oh my, it is so delicious. It’s got wonderful flavor and a nice kick to it- but it’s certainly not overly spicy. Unless of course, if you like foods hot and spicy, then by all means, all a jalapeno or twelve.

  • 1 8-oz block cream cheese
  • 1 cup cour cream
  • 1 4-oz can diced green chiles, lightly drained
  • 1 can Del Monte Petite Cut Doced Tomatoes with Green Chiles
  • 1 heaping cup of shredded Colby Jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese {with more grated/ shaves of Parmesan for top of dip}
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp onion powder

Put block of cream cheese in a large glass bowl and soften in microwave for 1 minute. 
Meanwhile, lightly drain green chiles and more fully drain tomatoes. I left the green chiles in the strainer for about 1 minute, lightly tapping it on the side of the sink. I left the tomatoes in there for about 5-8 minutes, tapping the strainer on the side a little more fully. {I didn’t stand there for 5-8 minutes tapping it to remove the liquid, I dumped them in then came back to it about 5 minutes or so later, tapped it several times and called it drained!}
Once cream cheese is soft, add in the sour cream, garlic salt and onion powder and whisk until smooth. Add in cheeses and stir to combine. 
Transfer mixture to a shallow baking dish- an 8×8 square glass dish would be OK, but if you have something larger than that but smaller than a 9×13, it’d work better. I opted to have a little fun with it and divided the dip among 3 oven-safe dishes. 
Spoon tomatoes over the cheese mixture. Do not stir! Leave the tomatoes on top. 
Bake at 375 for 30 minutes. 
Remove from oven and add a few shaves of Parmesan cheese to the top of the dip. 
Enjoy with slices of bread, like we did, or crackers, tortilla chips, etc!
