This can bump up the spice factor

Jalapeño Popper Dip

2 8-oz. packages cream cheese, softened (light works great)
1 c. mayonnaise (light also works here, but DON’T use Miracle Whip!)
1 c. Parmesan cheese
2 cloves garlic, pressed or finely minced
1 4-oz. can fire roasted green chilies
1/2-1 4-oz. can diced jalapeno peppers*, drained
optional: 8oz bacon, cooked and crumbled
1-2 sourdough baguettes, sliced, and/or crackers

*1/2 can is mild with a little bite, a whole can is definitely on the spicy side, but if you’ve got taste buds of steel, you might prefer a 7-oz. can.

Preheat oven to 350. If using bacon, reserve 2-3 Tbs and sprinkle on top of dip before baking. Combine cream cheese, mayo, parmesan, and garlic and stir until smooth. Add jalapenons and green chilies. If using bacon, stir in remaining bacon. Spread dip into a 9″ pie plate or a small baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining bacon if using. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until dip is bubbly and golden brown.

Here's one my hubby loves! It makes alot. As you can tell by the directions, it's a guy's recipe.

Asian Snack Mix

3/4 c melted butter
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp soy or teriaki sauce
3 tbsp ketchup or sweet hot chili sauce
1 tbsp onion powder
3/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp ground red pepper
1/2 tsp prepared brown mustard
1 tbsp sesame oil

4 c rice chex cereal
4 c wheat chex cereal
3 c chow mein noodles
2 c salted cashew halves
2 c wasabi peas

Combine first 9 ingredients with sesame oil and blend well in a medium cooler. (Easier to mix in).

Combine dry ingredients and slowly mix in butter, toss to coat evenly.

Spread on big cookie sheets and bake 250 for 1 hr, stirring every 15 minutes. When done let cool on newspapers. It's addicting!

1) 1 box Cheerios
2) 1 box Cheez-its
3) 1 bag pretzels
4) 3 boxes of Chex cereals
5) nuts

I use a 20 quart stainless steel bowl and fill it with any mixture of cereals, crackers, etc. The above is the original recipe. Use your imagination. After you have combined your variety of dry ingredients, coat with the following mixture:

1) 1 tablespoon garlic salt
2) 1 tablespoon celery salt
3) 1 tablespoon ground all spice
4) ½ tablespoon cayenne pepper
5) 3 tablespoons Accent

Dissolve the spices in one pound of oleo (I use butter) and one cup of vegetable oil. If you are not using a stainless steel bowl, place the mixture in a LARGE baking pan and bake for 2 hours at 200 degrees. Stir every 20 minutes.

Comment: This is a spicy mix and you will never want to eat the “bland” mixes again. I make large popcorn tins of this at Christmas time and for receptions.

made a package of pretzels, 1/4 cup melted butter, one package ranch mix and 1/2 tsp cayenne powder. .. mix dry first together then dump pretzels in large baggie coat with butter sprinkle on dry ingredients, shake to coat sorta roll them around.. put on baking sheet (I cover mine with parchment no mess later) sprinkle parmesean cheese shredded on top lightly bake 300 degrees 1o minuts stir, bake 10 minutes longer 20 minutes total. spicy salty pretzels. everyone loves them. last about a week if you hide them lol.

spiced nuts: 1 cup water, 1/2 cup sugar.. bring to boil one minutes. toss in your favorite mix of -plain nuts to coat, about 3 cups.. quickly remove from syrup place on lined cookie sheet recommend wax or parchment as it will stick. sprinkle with old bay seasoning and extra cayenne if you like .. lightly bake 250 for 10 minutes. cool and enjoy. you can add a bit of extra spice when you remove them hot from the oven if you like.. also salt your nuts after coating them in sugar mixture.. old bay has quiet a bit but you can add more if you like salty stuff.
