Jalapeño Popper Dip

Raven Higheagle


This dip is based on the typical jalapeno poppers that you see on most appetizer menus. The first time I made jalapeno poppers, I couldn’t eat them. Apparently the peppers I picked to stuff were too spicy to eat on their own, even with the cream cheese filling. Dad and I just could not finish them because we were dying. With this dip, you can control the heat level with the amount of seeds and membrane you add. The first time I made this, I put very little in, and the spice level just wasn’t there. This time around, I put all of the seeds in. It uh definitely opened up your sinuses.
