How to Make Jalapeño Popper Cheese Dip

I can’t believe that it’s already Fall and time for Football!  Football, I think, is my favorite sport!  It probably has more to do with spending time together as a family and noshing on food then it does on the actual sport!

I will admit though that jalapeños are one of those foods that I have a love/hate relationship with. I will eat them if they are mixed into a dip or in a recipe, like in a popper or dip, when they aren’t really overpowering, however, I can’t just slice one up and eat it. I’m weird, I know, but it’s just one of the foods I can eat in a variety of ways just like in this yummy Jalapeño Popper Cheese Dip!

Expert Tips, Ingredient List and Suggestions for Recipe Success

Jalapeños – you can also use frozen or canned. Just thaw them out and squeeze the water off of them if you use the frozen.
Cream cheese – regular or lite. Totally up to you.
Mayonnaise – any brand will do.
Cheese – you can honestly use pepper jack, hot pepper, mozzarella, or any combination your family loves.

I learned this key part of recipe prep a long time ago!  When you don’t use food grade disposable gloves when prepping peppers, the juice from the peppers get underneath your finger nails and all it is going to take is for you to rub your eyes, nose, etc., and you will quickly see WHY wearing gloves is key!

Ingredients for Jalapeño Popper Cheese Dip

Should I Remove the Seeds Or Leave Them In?

That is totally up to you.  When you leave the seeds in the pepper, it will make the recipe spicier.

Why This Recipe Works

Because it’s so versatile.   If bacon isn’t your thing, then you don’t need to add it.  Want more cheese?  Add what you would like!  Not a fan of bread? You could use pita chips, tortilla chips, or anything else you prefer!  A spoon would be great too!

This recipe is pretty easy to put together!  I think it will really be a hit at your next tailgate or even family movie night!

Step 3: In a medium-sized bowl, add in the cream cheese, sour cream, the mayonnaise, and the garlic powder.

Step 4: Then using an electric or hand-held mixer, mix on low speed until the mixture is well combined and creamy.

Step 5: Next, add in the 2 cups of shredded cheese, 3/4 th of the bacon and the diced jalapeños. Stir to combine.
