This Jalapeño Popper Dip is loaded with cheesy goodness and a little bit of heat from the jalapeños. This delicious dip tastes just like the classic appetizer!
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
