Bacon Jalapeno Popper Dip

Cathy Smith


Even people who make their own jalapeno popper dip ask for the recipe for this dip. I show them the recipe which reads like everyone elses. I actually use authentic Mexican cheeses but the recipe states cheddar, mozzarella and parmesan cheese.

How to Make Bacon Jalapeno Popper Dip


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Combine all of the ingredients into a medium bowl. Stir well. Transfer to an oven proof dish. The size of the dish depends on how thick the dip is. A 12 inch dish will make your dip about an inch thick.
  3. Combine the topping ingredients and sprinkle all over the top of the dip.
  4. Bake the dip for 20-30 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown on top.
  5. Notes: If you like cilantro you can add a little bit of fresh chopped into dip. You can also add just a touch of cumin into the melted butter before stirring into the topping. Serve with chips, tortillas, pitas, or crackers.
