Hot Jalapeño and Hearts of Palm Dip

National Dip Day isn’t until March 23rd, and there isn’t a National Hot Dip Day (Can you imagine?!), but I couldn’t wait to share this delicious hot dip with you. Perfect for the current tailgate season, and upcoming holiday season, it is flavorful, and spicy, and cheesy, and so delicious. It contains two of my new favorite ingredients, pickled jalapeños and hearts of palm, and works equally well as a hot dip with chips or crackers, as it does atop little rye rounds and run under the broiler. You have the option of making it as spicy or mild as you like by either removing the seeds and veins from the jalapeños, or just going crazy and leaving them in. My guess is that this isn’t a wildly used combination, so when you make this you will be unique among your friends. You must give this one a try.
Hot Jalapeño and Hearts of Palm Dip

1 14.5-oz. jar
Melissa‘s Hearts of Palm
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
¼ cup Parmesan cheese
½ cup minced
Melissa’s Pickled Jalapeños
½ cup chopped scallions
¼ cup sour cream
¾ cup mayonnaise
Salt and pepper, to taste
Chopped parsley for garnish

Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray a 9” pie or
quiche/tart pan with cooking spray; set aside.

Mix all ingredients EXCEPT parsley in a medium mixing bowl until creamy. Turn into prepared pan. Bake for 25 minutes until hot and bubbly. Remove from oven and set on a cooling rack and allow it to cool for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.

What a neat spin on what I call jalapeno popper dip! I really need to try hearts of palm. But today I'm going to peruse your tailgate recipes for tomorrow's NCAA football games!
As always your photos make me very hungry. I love that baking plate you've used for the dip.
