2 cups shredded quesadilla cheese or mozzarella cheese
4 ounces low fat cream cheese
1/4 cup low fat milk
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
4 tablespoons canned diced green chilies
Sriracha (or another hot sauce, or salsa, depending on preferred spiciness)

Optional garnish: black olive “spiders”


In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the cream cheese and milk together. Stir in the shredded cheese, green chilies and spices. Salt, if needed.

Pour mixture into wide-mouthed bowl. Squeeze a circle of Sriracha (or salsa or hot sauce) along edge of bowl, and gradually work additional circles towards the center of the bowl. Drag a toothpick from center circle to outer circle to form a web shape.

Garnish with black olive “spiders.”
