JALAPEÑO POPPER DIP RECIPE

I knew when I made this Jalapeno Popper Dip that it fit in the “Man Food” category and would definitely be husband friendly. It’s an easy, creamy jalapeno dip with just enough heat to please the hubby but mild enough to be enjoyed by myself.
I loved this dip because the heat can be controlled. Not that wives are control hungry or anything. But marriage is all about compromise, right? That’s why over the years our meat to sauce ratio has decreased and unfortunately our metabolisms as well.
You can make this Jalapeno Popper Dip with just a little heat or you can double the jalapenos for the spicy lovin’ men in your life. It’s a no fuss dip that doesn’t take you away from watching the game.

WHAT ARE PANKO BREADCRUMBS?

Panko breadcrumbs are a Japanese bread crumb made from white bread. They can be found by the regular breadcrumbs at the grocery store.

Panko bread crumbs and melted butter on top of the dip make for the perfect crunchy topping.

FRESH JALAPEÑOS VERSUS CANNED JALAPENOS

This recipe calls for canned jalapenos but you can use fresh if you like instead. The pros of canned jalapenos is that the heat is controlled.
Canned jalapenos aren’t too spicy. Fresh jalapenos are great too but they can be hard to determine how spicy the peppers can be because every pepper is different.

WHAT DO I SERVE JALAPENO POPPER DIP WITH?

Serve this hot dip with chips, your favorite crackers, baguette slices, celery sticks, or carrot sticks.

​BACON

Traditional jalapeño poppers are wrapped in crispy bacon. If you want to add bacon to make this more of a cheesy dip, it would be great.
