If you’re going to be subjected to, err,enjoying watching the Super Bowl this year, you’re going to need some awesome snackS, and boy do I have you covered! My Green Chile & Artichoke Bread is sure to be a hit!
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. When butter is completely melted, add garlic and saute about 30 seconds to a minute. Remove from heat and add all ingredients except the bread. Stir just until combined. (You're not melting the cheese at this point).
Slice the ciabatta loaf lengthwise and place crust side down on a foil lined cookie sheet. Spoon mixture over the bread and spread equally on each side. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper, if desired.
Place bread under the preheated broiler for about four to five minutes, or until cheese is melted and just starting to brown. Cool, slice, and serve immediately.
Make sure your cream cheese is at room temp for easy spreading! This way it will also gain a beautiful color under the broiler.
