This is my go-to dip recipe for summer barbecues. The secret is the green chilies—they add just enough heat. —Susan Jordan, Denver, Colorado
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + chilling YIELD:6 servings


  • 1 package (8 ounces) reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons canned chopped green chilies
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 green onions, chopped, divided
  • 2 ounces smoked salmon fillet
  • Assorted crackers or toasted French bread baguette slices
