Jalapeno Popper Dip

I used to host a family get-together every October. We’d have a big meal and let the kids paint pumpkins. We called it Octoberfest. Then people’s schedules got too busy for us all to meet in October and my get together got pushed back to November, so I changed the name to Mocktoberfest.

Jalapeno Popper Dip

Mocktoberfest is always the same day as our little town’s annual Holiday Parade, more often than not, it’s flipping freezing outside. We all bundle up and go stand in the cold for an hour and a half to watch all the marching bands, school floats, Shriner cars, horses, pageant princesses and queens, and  finale of Santa on top  a fire truck with a bunch of cheerleaders!  I love this little slice of small town Americana. It’s my favorite parade, in spite of the freezing cold.

After spending the morning bundled up, with frosty noses and freezing toeses, we find this jalapeno popper dip is the perfect appetizer to get us warmed back up! Even though it’s got a spicy kick to it, everyone in my extended family loves it, even the little people. It’s one thing that I know if I make it, there will never be any leftovers, because as soon as they walk in the door and see I’ve made Jalapeno Popper Dip everyone makes a beeline towards it. Holiday parade +Jalapeno popper dip + afternoon Scrabble with my family pretty much equals my favorite day.

(If I could convince them to bring me presents too, then it would be over the top best day ever.)

Jalapeno Popper Dip

This dip is a breeze to make, from start time to serve time, it takes just around 30 minutes. You start with softened cream cheese, mayo, shredded mexican cheese, canned jalapenos, and crisp crumbled bacon. Mix it all together, spread into a greased baking dish and top it off with buttered panko bread crumbs.

Serve this dip with sturdy tortilla chips for dipping. I picked up my ingredients at my local Wal-Mart.

I love mixing bacon and jalapenos with cream cheese. It does remind me of jalapeno party poppers.

I would DOMINATE this dip. Like, happily devour that entire bowl. Yum!

Amy D December 2, 2015 - 10:16 pm

Trish, if you’re the kind of gal who could eat an entire bowl of this, then you’re the kind of gal who could be my friend for sure!

I love jalapeno poppers but hate all the work that goes into making them. I would love this dip!

Amy D December 2, 2015 - 10:21 pm

Your comment got me to thinking. I haven’t made jalapeno poppers for almost 10 years. Not since I had an unfortunate accident with a mistaken habanero. (This was when I was very young and not very kitchen smart.) Luckily for me, I didn’t eat it. I fed one to my husband, who can handle hot stuff. Then my poor sister snuck one when she came home from work that night, she can’t handle hot stuff and she almost ended up on the floor. I felt so bad. But it was also kind of funny, not so much for her though.

What a great recipe…looks easy to make and perfect for all the football games coming up this and next month. Delicious!

Amy D December 2, 2015 - 10:24 pm

Thanks Ali, it would be a good game day food! We’ve lived without real TV, Netflix only for so long, that I sometimes forget about stuff like watching football games on TV. 🙁 I used to love watching football.

Love the idea of Mocktoberfest. What an awesome name and a fantastic dip for a party.

Amy D December 2, 2015 - 10:29 pm

Honestly, Christie, I like it better as Mocktoberfest than I did as regular Octoberfest. I kind of love the idea of made up holidays and think that I might come up with one or two more. I just think that it will be really fun to have these become my family traditions that my kids will grow up with. And when they tell their friends or their spouses later, they will be like what the heck is a mocktoberfest? You know what I mean?

This dip looks amazing! I love the idea of having a small town parade, followed by some scrabble and a delicious appetizer (with some kick) with family! {client}

Thanks Stephanie. It makes for such a fun day. Simple blessings are the best, good food and good family time.
