  • 2 (8oz) packages cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 cup light sour cream
  • Juice of ½ a lime
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. salt

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Arrange tots in the bottom of a 9×13-inch casserole. Bake until crispy, about 25 minutes. Meanwhile combine cream cheese, sour cream, lime juice and spices in a large bowl. Stir in chopped jalapenos and 1 cup of the shredded cheese.
