Who is ready for a new appetizer recipe? Bonus it’s an easy recipe. We love easy recipes. I typically share them every Monday if your new here. This appetizer recipe came together one weekend in my home kitchen. I was thinking about what I could pair with these yummy blue tortilla chips we had just purchased and put in the cupboard.
When I was in the cupboard I saw I had some Just Mayo I hadn’t tried yet too. I pulled my items. Grabbed my fresh jalapeños peppers mixture from the fridge. I had just canned some jalapenos so I already had peppers chopped up and ready to put into something. But, don’t worry I’ll share everything you need below.
Can you see my wheels turning? A recipe was starting to develop. Chips, mayo, jalapeño, peppers, lime, cilantro….. a dip recipe was soon forming in my mind. I set out to create an appetizer that I could use over and over again for gatherings or just for my family weekend snackers. Who is ready to get mixing? Then dipping!

The best part is you can adapt this recipe easily. Make it thicker or thinner to your liking. Spice it up or keep it milder like I did. Ahem, this is going to have you dipping in no time flat!
Oh, sorry I couldn’t help myself. Now, let me get back to sharing how to make the recipe. Make it then get dip, dip, dipping!
Just grab a bowl, knife, fork and food processor those are the kitchen tools you need. Next I added 4 oz. of cream cheese and 1/4 cup of Just Mayo in Garlic flavor in a bowl. If you need vegan substitutions I have that in the recipe card notes.
I also added 1/4 cup Just Mayo in Sriracha flavor and my chopped jalapeños. At first I thought I’d make it in the bowl.
Then I realized I needed to really cream it by adding it to the food processor, as I didn’t soften my cream cheese first. I wrote it in the recipe the right way! Soften first.
I gave it a few spins then added a freshly rinsed cilantro bunch about a half cup. Wow, what was I thinking this is so much easier! lol If you don’t have a food processor let the cream cheese soften just prior to starting and chop your cilantro by hand. Then just cream it by hand until texture is the consistency you like.
Since the jalapeños are seeded this is mild with a savory flavor thanks to the Just Mayo flavors. Want to kick it up a k-notch? Leave in some jalapeño seeds and add crushed garlic.
