Jalapeño Popper Dip
When making appetizers, on occasion I make Jalapeño Poppers. While the kids can only take so much because of the spice – I have found it’s always a hit with the adults in a gathering.
This easy Jalapeño Popper Dip recipe is taking that beloved favourite into a dip form, making it much simpler to make than stuffing individually. It’s a mess-free version of the same taste to enjoy as an appetizer.
Plus, since you control the amount placed on a cracker or chip, even those who don’t care for spice take take a little and still enjoy.
This dip is creamy, cheesy, spicy and loaded with familiar flavours. It’s a warm dip recipe that has a crunchy crumb topping that will be a surprise hit at the next party or when watching the big game.
For a dip recipe that also has that latin kick, you must check out this Mexican Fiesta Dip. Or, if you need a dip with less of a kick, try this Warm Mushroom Dip. And of course there is always the go-to fan favourite – classic Spinach and Artichoke Dip.
Happy dipping – YUM!
