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.



Jalapeno Popper Dip - all ingredients in bowl not mixed together



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.

Jalapeno Popper Dip is 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 this Jalapeno Popper Dip.  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!

    • 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!
