Jalapeno Popper Dip

Christmas has come and gone. I can’t believe it. We had a really wonderful holiday and I hope you all did too! The kids got spoiled, I got spoiled from my hubby, and we ate all the things! I saw a meme on Instagram that said something like the 5 days between Christmas and New Years where you don’t know what day it is, who you are or what you’re supposed to being doing. lol I have to say that is so true. Especially working from home. I woke up this morning literally thinking ‘what day is it today?’ haha 🙂

Now that New Year’s Eve will be here before we know it I thought I would share one of my most favorite savory dips ever- Jalapeño Popper Dip! This dip is creamy, cheesy and has just a small kick from the jalapeño. It tastes just like the classic appetizer, but in my opinion better! We like to dip Ritz crackers in ours, but you could dip anything in it. Crackers, tortilla chips, veggies, or whatever your heart desires.

I’ve been known to play around with recipes and this dip is one of them. Sometimes I will add cooked, chopped bacon and it makes it extra delicious! My family loves this one. Including my kiddos although they have to have a cold glass of milk nearby to calm down their hot tongues. lol

  1. I live in Germany and have searched high and low for Panko bread crumbs, but to no avail. Do you think this would be good if I substituted that for crushed up Ritz crackers?

      Sheri – panko bread crumbs are just a course chop of crustless bread. You can easily make your own by shredding some bread (no crusts) into course crumbs and then dry them out in an oven at about 300 degrees for 6 to 8 minutes. Don’t let them toast, just dry them out and then store. Good substitutes are crushed crackers, crushed potato chips, crushed stuffing mix or even crushed pretzels. Good luck!

  2. I’m making this today for the first time, could you substitute greek yogurt for the sour cream? Thank you!

    This dip is so good! We served it with ritz crackers and veggies. I had to make a second batch because my family loved it so much!
