Jalapeno Popper Dip




This will have your tastebuds popping all over the place!
I needed something fun to take to a pool party
and settled on something savory rather
than something sweet.

Wow, it was creamy and yummy with just as much kick
as you want!  

Jalapeno Popper Dip

2 - 8 oz. packages cream cheese
1 1/2 C. Mexican blend cheese
1 C. mayonaise
1/2 C. parmesan cheese
1/2 - 1 - 4 oz can sliced jalapenos
1- 4 oz. can green chilis

Topping
1/2 C. panko crumbs
1/4 C. melted butter
1/2 C. Mexican blend cheese

Preheat oven to 375.

In a food processor, blend the cream cheese, cheese, mayo, 
parmesan, jalapenos and chilis.  
You need to use a food processor to blend the  jalapenos and 
chilis well.  If  you are worried about heat, start with
1/2 of the can of jalapenos adding more if desired.

In a small bowl mix the panko crumbs and melted butter.

Place the mixture in a 2 quart oven proof casserole
with Pam.  Spread the cheese mix in the dish.  Top
with 1/2 C. Mexican cheese and then the crumb mix.

Garnish with half of a fresh jalapeno stuffed
with the cheese mix and topped with the crumbs
if desired.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until bubbly around
the edges.

Serve with chips and a sliced assortment of breads.


It is nice to garnish it with a jalapeno to warn
everyone that this is a spicy dip.  We used the full
can of jalapenos and it had plenty of kick.  Adjust
the heat as desired.




It was a huge hit!  We were going to a BBQ that week
too, so I made it again and the pan was scraped clean.

SUPER YUM!

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.

  1. Looks great! We went to a pool party this weekend and my husband the chef made smoked cheddar-stuffed jalapeƱos wrapped in bacon. That was pretty yum, too!
