Really Good Jalapeño Dip:

I was back home for a while this past Christmas. During that time there were lots of family gatherings. My dad’s wife Michelle had a new dip recipe to share: a jalapeño dip.

At first glance, it appeared basic, but one bite proved otherwise. Served chilled, the simple combination of flavors resulted in a really good dip. I was hooked.

This dip made several appearances throughout the week I was in St. Marys, and I was never disappointed. At several points, I physically stop myself from overindulging on it.

But, of course, before I left I had to ask for the recipe so I could share it with all of you.

This Really Good Jalapeño Dip is easy to make and perfect for any celebration.

As you know, I use the phrase “really good” instead of “the best” here on IBC. Since I haven’t tried all of the jalapeño dips in the world, I can’t claim that this is the best. However, I can tell you that this dip is really, really, really good!!

How to Make Really Good Jalapeño Dip:

Besides the flavor, one of the things I love about this recipe is that it comes together quickly. Counting the time it takes to chop the peppers, the total prep time is under 10 minutes.

Since this dip contains jalapeños, I assume you’re wondering about the spiciness. To be honest, it’s not that spicy.

Michelle recommends using the pith (the white part in the pepper) and seeds from one of the jalapeño peppers. That’s what she did. There was a touch of heat, but all that cheese keeps the spiciness to a minimum.

If you want more heat, use the pith and seeds from more than one of the jalapeños. If you don’t like heat, don’t include any pith or seeds.

Notes

*When preparing your jalapeños, remove the seeds and white part (pith) of each pepper. This is where most of the heat is. I like to include the seeds and pith from one or two peppers to give this dip a little heat. You can add more, depending on the level of spiciness you desire.

    Really excited to try this dip! How far ahead of time could I make this? Or should it be served right away?

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      The peppers will release water over time. You can make it in the morning and serve it in the evening and that’d be fine. Also, if you know you’ll be tight on time, you can cut up the peppers in advance. Then all you need to do is mix.
