Sunday's cheese and salsa dip

I had one more recipe from Sunday's party that I wanted to share it's a cheese and salsa dip that's usually a  hit and the recipe get passed around a lot.  I only have the before picture while I was prepping. I didn't think of  taking a picture later on and when I did it was almost gone.

Cheese & Salsa Dip
8 oz. cream cheese softened
6 oz. jar salsa
4 oz. shredded Monterey Jack cheese
4 oz. shredded extra sharp chedder cheese

1.  Place cream cheese in a glass dish and microwave for 1-2 minute till soft.  It should be soft enough to spread along the  bottom of the plate.
2. Pour salsa and spread evenly.
3.  Evenly drop a layer of Monnterey Jack cheese and then a layer of extra sharp chedder.
4.  Preheat oven 350 degrees and bake for 20 minutes till cheese melts.  Or instead microwave for 3-5 minutes till cheese is melted.  First microwave for 3 minutes check then see if it needs another minute or two.  If it looks too cheesy slice with a knife like a pie.  Either way it's cooked it will yummy with tortilla chips.
Note:  This can be prepared a day ahead just do steps 1-3 and do the last step a little while before serving. 
A definite party favorite in our family.
