One of my uncles has been bringing an awesome jalapeno popper dip for holidays with my extended family. His wife also made it for a bridal shower she hosted for me. 🙂 I was looking forward to it for Thanksgiving and was not disappointed! Today I decided to make some for myself!
This dip is fantastic, and it’s even easier than making homemade jalapeno poppers!
Jalapeno Popper Dip
Adapted from Kraft Recipes
1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup mayonnaise
4 ounces shredded sharp cheddar cheese
3-5 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped*
12 Ritz or Club crackers (or generic), crushed
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 green onion, chopped, or 1/4 cup chopped onion
1. Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Mix cream cheese, mayonnaise, cheese, peppers, and onion in a medium bowel until well blended. Spread into a greased 9-inch pie plate or other small baking dish.
4. Bake 25 minutes or until edges are slightly browned. Serve with tortilla chips or crackers.
*Use more or fewer jalapenos depending on your taste! I made this with 3 peppers today, and it was very mild. I will use more next time!
