Baked Mozzarella-Jalapeño Dip

"If you like extreme heat then throw in another jalapeño and some Tabasco, this could also be made omitting the jalapeño if desired, my family likes it really hot so I use 3 large jalapeño with the Tabasco :)"

    The whole family loved this dip. The only complaint, was that it was a little too salty. So I think next time I will cut out or cut back the garlic salt and increase the minced garlic instead. I used low fat Hellmans for the mayo. I also left out the optional hot sauce. But if you enjoy a little bit of heat, I suggest you use it to give this delicious dip a kick!

    Yum! I made this for Superbowl Sunday, and it was gone in minutes. It was a bit different than I had expected- thicker, I think. Next time I will add a touch more mayo for creaminess (I used light), and definitely more jalapenos and hot sauce as it was a bit too mild for my taste. With those little tweaks, I would give it a five. Also, the recipe calls for parm. cheese but never says what to do with it... I sprinkled it on top after the garlic salt. Thanks for an easy, yummy crowd-pleaser!

    Wow! this was yummy! I did mix the garlic salt into the cheese mixture like a reviewer suggested. I did find that the overall dish was a bit on the salty side. Next time I may not use the garlic salt but just use some minced garlic. I also omitted the olives cuz I don't care for them. Overall this is a keeper. DH and I truly enjoyed this. Thanks Kit for posting.

    This is a savory tasting baked cheese dip that I served with tortilla chips. I recommend unsalted tortilla chips. I made the whole recipe but omitted the olives because I didn't have any. I used 2 small jalapenos and I think the next time I might even add more heat! Also, I think I would mix the garlic salt with the cheese mixture. I did have to bake mine about 30 minutes for it to get brown around the edges. The leftovers reheated worked well, too! Thanks for sharing!
