This delicious appetizer combines all of the classic flavors of a jalapeno popper into a convenient and easy-to-serve dip. It’s perfect for any party or gathering, and is sure to be a hit with both adults and kids.
To make jalapeno popper dip, you will need the following ingredients:
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup diced jalapenos (about 3-4 jalapenos)
- 1/4 cup diced red onion
- 1/4 cup bread crumbs
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 sprigs cilantro
First, preheat your oven to 350°F and grease a 9-inch pie dish or shallow casserole dish. This will be the vessel for your delicious jalapeno popper dip, so make sure to choose a dish that is the right size and shape for your needs.
Next, it’s time to assemble the dip. In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese until it is smooth and creamy. This step is important, as it will help to ensure that the dip has a smooth and creamy texture. Once the cream cheese is smooth, add in the cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, jalapenos, red onion, garlic, salt, and pepper. Mix everything together until well combined.
Now it’s time to transfer the mixture to the prepared dish. Pour the jalapeno popper dip into the pie dish or casserole dish and smooth the top with a spatula. Make sure to evenly distribute the mixture and remove any excess air bubbles to ensure that the dip bakes evenly.
Bake the dip in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until it is hot and bubbly. The dip should be lightly browned on top and the edges should be slightly crispy.
When the jalapeno popper dip is done, remove it from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes. This will allow the dip to set and make it easier to serve.
To serve the dip, simply scoop out a portion and enjoy it with your choice of dippers. Some popular options include tortilla chips, crackers, and sliced veggies. You can also serve the dip over grilled chicken or mixed into pasta for a spicy twist on classic dishes.
No matter how you choose to enjoy it, jalapeno popper dip is a delicious and flavorful appetizer that is sure to be a hit with everyone. So why wait? Give this recipe a try and see for yourself just how tasty it can be.
