I never considered myself a dip girl, until I met someone who said that dips, were their favorite foods.
They couldn’t resist a good dip.
It was at that point, I started trying different dips, thinking maybe I was somehow missing out on a delicious world I never really bothered with before.
And it’s while I’ve been on this journey, I have been converted to the world of appetizer dips.
I love them. I can literally sit at a counter, or table and snack away my appetite.
Dips are perfect for game night, baby or bridal shower, the big game or even tailgating, there is always an excuse to make a special dip.
When most people hear “Jalapeno Popper Dip,” they instantly think spicy. And they would all be wrong.
This dip is sooo creamy and the flavors all blend so perfectly together that it really has become one of our family favorites.
It also happens to be the dip I like to take to parties with me.
It’s easy to make ahead and tastes great served both hot or warm and the recipe is ALWAYS requested.
Yes this recipe does have Jalapenos. But I take the seeds out of mine so that I get the flavor of the Jalapeno without the heat of the Jalapenos.
I have yet to meet anyone who hasn’t fallen in love with this dip and I suspect you and your family will love it as much as we do!
Below are step by step directions on how to make it. I also included a little bonus for you.
I rarely post photos of my family or my “photo studio”. But I really couldn’t pass up on posting these photos of my husband and son.
It was late in the day and I was losing my daylight.
The place I normally take photos had already lost all of its light and on a whim, I grabbed my husband and supplies and headed outside to capture the last bit of natural light for the photos.
Looking at them you’d never know we were in my front yard on my walkway taking food photos.
And really, had my neighbors been outside they would have thought I was nuts. But lucky for everyone, I was able to capture the photos without anyone noticing! Enjoy!
