Jalepeño Popper Dip

Have you been invited to a New Year's Eve or Day party and have been asked to bring something to share? I have the perfect dip to bring--it's always a hit when I bring it to parties: Jalepeño Popper Dip.

I wish I had had this recipe when I was pregnant with my first child. The only craving I had that time around was jalepeño poppers. (And I had a strange aversion to poultry, but that's another story!) I kept jalepeño poppers in our freezer at all times and often had them as a "pre-dinner" snack. As someone who has eaten a lot of jalepeño poppers in her time, I'm here to tell you that this dip tastes just like the real thing, but has the added bonus of being a dip! I have this recipe thanks to my cousin, Shannon (who I'm trying to talk into starting her own food blog...hint, hint!). Enjoy!

Jalepeño Popper Dip
Makes enough for a party of 4-6 people. Double the batch and thank me later. :-)

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese (room temperature)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 pepper jack cheese, grated
1 (4 ounce) can sliced pickled jalapenos, roughly chopped
½-2 jalapeno peppers, minced (Use as little or as much as you’d like depending on how hot you want it. I used about ½-1.)
1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup parmigiano reggiano
1 Tbl butter, melted
Tortilla chips

1. Mix the cream cheese, mayonnaise, cheddar cheese, pepper jack cheese and jalapenos in a bowl and pour into a baking dish.
2. Mix the panko bread crumbs and parmigiano reggiano with the butter and sprinkle over the dip.
3. Bake in a 375F oven until bubbling on the sides and golden brown on top, about 10-20 minutes.

Serve warm with tortilla chips.

That's definitely the kind of dip I'd have trouble stepping away from. :-) Happy New Year, Mindy!

Wish I had read your post before I went to the grocery today! This looks so great. Perfect for NYE and just about any other time. :)

I love this! Why I also had cravings, and I would pre-eat and then go to the next craving for dinner...I am making this soon. I hope you are feeling well, and wanted to wish you a Happy New Year...I hope all is going well with you!

So, I decided to make this for a NYE party once I saw your post. The BF asked me to save some of the mix to use as a spread on sandwiches. Genius! :)

Shannon, you're BF *is* a genius! I'll have to try it sometime...if we ever have any leftovers! (BTW, I had an awesome BLT that used fried green tomatoes and added a pimento cheese spread in Asheville, NC in October. I'm thinking this would be a good substitute for pimento cheese...)

This looks good! My mouth is watering.
Thanks for sharing

I have one thing to say about this dip - YUMMY!

Another one that looks awesome!

It looks very tasty on the photo. I will cook it for New Year Eve dinner, thank you for receipt. I wonder how different our skills and interests are. I know how to write an amazing essay for college, you know how cook something tasty, the other person knows something else. It is amazing!
