Jalapeno Popper Dip!!!

jalapeno2This right here….. is AMAZING! Honestly can’t think of another word to describe it. A friend of ours tagged me in a recipe on Facebook and joked that I needed to make it for him and the hubs. I LOVE jalapeño popper, the ones with cream cheese in it not cheddar. I can not stand the ones with cheddar and I’m not sure why cause I do like cheddar cheese…. normally.

The other day I got all the ingredients or so I thought. Got home from a workout last night and thought ” Damn, that sounds awesome today.” So I went about getting ingredients and realized I did not have a key piece of the recipe (sour cream). Having just got home from town, the hubs and myself were extremely irritated. The hubs more than I since he left shortly after to go to town. (He just really wanted this dip.) I went about making the boys their dinner (mac-n-cheese) and getting everything ready for this dip so when the hubs returned liked a knight in shinning armor, I could put the dip in the oven and roll.

What he didn’t know was it sounded freaking AMAZING. So, I finished it and baked it for the allotted time and couldn’t wait to dig in.  And I burnt my tongue in my hurry. 🙂 LOL (I was in a hurry okay…. don’t judge.)

My hope is that you try the recipe and fall in love as I have. Even the boys liked it. Enjoy it!!!

 

Jalapeno Popper Dip

Ingredients

  • 4 oz can of jalapeño slices ( cut into smaller pieces, sautéed in olive oil)
  • 8 oz package of cream cheese, softened (room temperature)
  • 1 Cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp garlic powder (more if desired)
  • 2 Cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 Cup Parmesan cheese

Topping

  • 1 Cup bread crumbs
  • 4 Tbls melted butter
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 Tbls parsley

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. With mixer on medium, combine cream cheese, garlic powder and sour cream until  fluffy.
  3. Add cheddar cheese, 3/4 cup parmesan cheese and diced jalapeños, mix well.
  4. Spread into an 8×8 baking dish.
  5. Combine bread crumbs, melted butter, 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, and parsley.
  6.  Sprinkle the crumb topping over the cream cheese mixture.
  7. Bake 15-20 minutes, or until hot and breadcrumbs are golden brown.

We used toasted french bread slices and Ritz crackers to eat it with. I do recommend the french bread and in no way is this recipe healthy, it’s just delicious and a great snack to have at say football viewing parties or cook outs.

Enjoy!
