Whenever I am asked to bring an savory appetizer to a party or get together, I always bring this Jalapeno Popper Dip.
Generally when I tell people the name of this dip, they hesitate to try it.
Convinced that every bite will come with a kick, many people avoid it all together.
It’s not until I assure them that there is ZERO kick to this dip that they hesitantly take their first bite.
(Cream cheese blended up until smooth.)
I assure them that I remove all the seeds from each jalapeno by hand to ensure that you get the flavor without the spice.
To say that watching their reaction to their first bite of this dip is a little like Christmas morning, would be an understatement.
Watching someone who is convinced you’re trying to poison them fall madly in love with this dip never gets old.
An individual’s face goes from skepticism to amazement within a fraction of a second.

I also included a little bonus for you.
I rarely post photos of my family or my “photo studio”.
(A portion removed from casserole dish to show how yummy it is under the topping)
However, 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!
