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.

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.

Thus far in my life, I have yet to meet someone who didn’t like this Jalapeno Popper Dip recipe.

I have had hundreds of people taste test it and the reviews are always positive.

Not to mention all of you who try this and leave comments on how much you enjoyed it as well! 

It’s almost like everyone who tries it your house, then has to go home and make it for themselves.

For our family, we like to serve this dip as a pre-Thanksgiving appetizer.

We’ve also been known to serve it at a tailgate party and baby shower!

It has yet to fail me as a crowd pleaser!

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.

And it’s while I’ve been on this journey, I have been converted to the world of appetizer dips.

I love them.

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!

Can you make Jalapeno Popper Dip ahead of time?

Yes you can!  This is one of those time saving recipes that you can prep ahead of time and then bake when you’re ready to eat!  Just follow the directions up until it’s time to bake.  Cover the dip with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and refrigerate until ready to bake.  Once you’re ready, bake as directed but add 10 minutes to the time!  So easy!

Yes you can!  You can toss it bask in the oven or even microwave it!  By zapping it in the microwave you can portion out just as much as you need into a bowl without having to reheat the entire pan!  It’s just as delicious the next day as it is the first!  


What goes with Jalapeno Popper Dip?

Because it’s an appetizer, other appetizers pair well with it. We recommend fresh fruit a veggie tray or even some fresh meats.  A nice slice of ham on top of a cracker full of Jalapeno Popper Dip would do nicely!

    • Made this for a Fall Festival Baby Shower and it was a HUGE hit! So quick, so easy…definately keeping this recipe within arms reach!

      • Melanie, you completely made my day! Thank you so much for your review! We love to hear back from people who try our recipes and hear how much they loved them! For future gatherings I’d also suggest our Strawberry Spinach Bruchettas and our Chocolate Chip Cheese ball. Both are huge hits at every gathering I take them too as well!

    • Karen I’ve never tried it in the crock pot but I can’t see why not. If you try it, let me know how it turns out. I’m very intrigued now by the idea!

  1. I made it for a party and it was just about gone by the end of the night!! I didn’t know the group of people that would be at this party but it turned out they really like spicy things (someone else brought a nacho dip with melted cheese and hot jalapeños, and people were commenting how they loved the spice in that) . So next time I would probably only remove the seeds from half of the jalapeños. On a side note I doubled this recipe since it was for about 60 people, and because I made it in advance and kept it in the fridge for a couple hours I took it out of the fridge 15 minutes before baking, and I baked it for 10 minutes covered in tinfoil first then followed the instructions to bake it uncovered for 30 minutes.
    Thanks for a great recipe!!

  2. Hi, I am wanting to make this tonight. Do you mean use 8 oz of cream cheese or 16 oz? The “2” is throwing me off. Lol
    I know we will love this. We make actual jalapeño poppers with a similar filling.

    • Linda, you can use any kind of Mayonnaise. You don’t taste it. The Jalapeno, Bacon and Cheeses are what you taste. I’ve tried a few different ones but generally get what is on sale. I’ve done this with Dukes and Hellmans. I hope you enjoy!

  3. I just made this for my friend’s bday tonight. I used Greek yogurt. I hope it’ll turn out well. I got feelings that dip will be gone for sure! Thank u for recipe!
