Hot Cheese Dip Recipe

This recipe started at school—I'm a teacher, and when a colleague brought Hot Cheese Dip to our regular staff potluck, I immediately gave it an A+. Cooking, baking and collecting recipe books are among my favorite hobbies. Best of all, though, I enjoy time with my husband and our daughter.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:24 servings


  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups mayonnaise
  • 1 medium onion, minced
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies, drained
  • 1-1/2 ounces sliced pepperoni

"Our family loves this recipe. But there is one change we have made. We cut the pepperoni up into small bits and actually stir it into the rest of the batter before cooking. This allows everyone to get bits of pepperoni when it is consumed. This dip is great warm. We think its even better as leftovers. Never an issue with it disappearing when we make it."

"I have made this dip many times for many different occasions. Everyone loves it and is always asking for the recipe. I do,however, substitute jalapeno's for the chilies. When anyone asks for the recipe, I just tell them to remember 2, 2, and 2 for the main ingredients then add as much onion, jalapeno's, pepperoni, and olives as they want. Easy!"

"?? Says combine first six ingredients, then top with pepperoni. Pepperoni is the 6th ingredient. Is there something missing, or should "first six" ingredients be "first five" ingredients?"
