Spicy BBQ Chicken Dip

When I think of BBQ, I usually think of brisket or ribs.  I certainly don't think of dip.  However, you can pretty much mix anything with cream cheese, put more cheese on top, put it in the oven and be guaranteed it will taste good.  My Buffalo Chicken Dip is one of the most viewed recipes on my blog.  This is just a variation on that version, and a very good variation I must say.  If you're not all into spicy like we are, you can certainly use a mild BBQ sauce and cut back on the amount of jalapenos, or leave them out all together.  Or add more!  Serve it hot out of the oven with a big pile of scoop-style tortilla chips and you've definitely got a winner!
