The BEST Jalapeño Popper Dip:

I had this Jalapeño Popper Dip on my blog years ago and for some reason or another, it got lost or accidentally deleted. My sister-in-law asked me for the recipe recently and that reminded me to make it, and share it with you again. (You’re welcome in advance because this recipe is DELISH!)

What’s great about this Jalapeño Popper Dip recipe is that it takes all the things you love about jalapeño poppers and transforms them into a dip form. It’s super creamy, there’s heat and bite from the jalapeños, and the topping gives that classic deep-fried crunch (without the deep frying of course which is even better). Plus, you can make this VERY quickly! 

So, if you’re looking for a new appetizer dip recipe that you want to be sure will be a hit, I highly recommend you give this recipe a try!

Recipe Notes and FAQ:

Here are a few questions you may have if you’re thinking about preparing this Jalapeño Popper Dip. 

Can I prepare this recipe in advance?

Yes, but I would wait to add the topping until you’re ready for the baking step in order to keep the topping from getting soggy. 

Can I make this spicier / less spicy?

Yes. I used a mix of both canned and fresh jalapeños in this recipe. If you want more heat, include the seeds and white ribs from the fresh jalapeño pepper. If you want less heat, eliminate (or only use half) of the fresh jalapeño pepper, and be sure to remove any seeds and the white parts of the interior of the jalapeño. 

Can I freeze this recipe?

I generally don’t like to freeze things with cream cheese. Since this is really easy and quick to mix up, I would avoid freezing.
