jalapeno popper dip

I made a jalapeno popper dip last weekend for the small football watching party we held. Of course, I was at the handmade market, so I walked in the door after everyone had already polished off the dip - apparently in .75 seconds.


I originally found the recipe on another blog, but I changed it up so it was a little easier. Here is my version.

jalapeño popper dip
2 8 oz packages cream cheese (we use the fat free version), at room temperature
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2/3 cup roasted red bell peppers, chopped
6 jalapeño peppers, seeded, ribbed and finely diced (we used 3 jalapeños and 3 banana peppers)
1 tsp garlic powder
2 T lemon juice
1 1/2 cups Mexican blend shredded cheese
1 tsp ground red pepper
1 cup bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine everything except the bread crumbs. I worked with the cream cheese and mayo first to make sure there weren't any huge lumps. Spread it evenly into a dish and top with the bread crumbs. I used fresh jalapenos and jarred red peppers.

I added more of some things to make up for the lack of others. I used my 1.75 quart le creuset baking dish that I got at Marshall's. I don't think I showed that to you yet, but you can guarantee that it matches my other green pieces. Everyone told me it was amazing. I don't do spicy foods, so I didn't even try it. Not that I could have since it was gone by the time I got home. But I'll take that as a compliment. : )

I need to load more items into my etsy shop, but it is dark by the time I get home from work so I have been having trouble getting photos. Hopefully I'll have some sunlight tomorrow so I can get everything else photographed and listed.

I hope everyone has a great weekend! Winter is arriving here... it's supposed to be 48 tomorrow. Brr!

xoxo, christa

  3. I agree with most of your points, but a few need to be discussed further, I will hold a small conversation with my buddies and perhaps I will look for you some opinion shortly.
