Jalapeno Popper Dip

Rule #307: A good dip is the best way to bring back the good ole days.

Who doesn’t love a juicy, cheesy jalapeño popper? I used to get them all the time when I worked at Sonic back in the day. Couple that with some ranch and holy moly. I wish I had the metabolism to handle that nowadays. This Jalapeno Popper Dip gives you all the flavor of the original thing, but in the form of a creamy, cheesy, slightly spicy condiment for your tortilla chip. Again, I’d love that metabolism back.

I’ve seen TONS of variations of this recipe. Some use only ‘real’ jalapeños. Some use only canned jalapeños. Some use a combo. I use only the jarred goodies that are already diced. That way, I can refrigerate the rest for some other yummy concoction down the line.

I like a good, shallow oven-proof dish that allows for scooping without too much gettin’ on your chip. I like a good chip-to-dip ratio, you know what I mean? This Le Creuset lovely was on sale during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale for only $30. A steal if you know anything about Le Creuset!

This Jalapeno Popper Dip recipe can’t get any easier.

Let your cream cheese come to room temperature (no, you won’t get sick).

Put the cream cheese + mayo + shredded cheddar + grated Parmesan + diced jalapeños in a biggo bowl or mixer.

Whip everything together in a standing mixer fitted with a spatula paddle OR just whip it up with a hand mixer OR just get your elbow grease going and use a whisk.
