JALAPENO POPPER DIP INGREDIENTS

A plate of food with broccoli

For the Dip:

  • 2 8-ounce packages of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ½ cup (4-ounces) jarred jalapeños, chopped
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded parmesan cheese
  • 4-5 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • ¼ cup green onion

For the Topping:

  • ½ cup plain Panko bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

BACON: You can add a little more if you really love bacon or omit if you don’t! 

SPICES: A teaspoon of garlic powder is awesome in this incredible dip as well. 

YOGURT: You can substitute the sour cream for Greek yogurt if you’d like to! 

CHEESE: You could also use Monterey Jack cheese in this recipe. Pepper Jack would also offer a nice extra bit of heat if you’d like.

JALAPENOS: I prefer canned jalapeños for this recipe, but you can also roast fresh jalapeños to use if you prefer. You can also adjust the amount depending on your spicy preference. If you leave the seeds and ribs in the jalapeños, your dip will have more kick, if you remove, it won’t be spicy. 

Try this bacon cheddar cream cheese dip as well, you’ll love it!

HOW TO MAKE THIS JALAPENO POPPER DIP

START: Preheat oven to 400 degrees and prepare an 8×8 dish or a 2 ½ quart casserole dish by spraying with nonstick spray.

STEP ONE: In a medium-sized bowl with a mixer on medium mix together the cream cheese and sour cream until smooth.

STEP TWO: Stir in the bacon, jalapeños, cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese, and green onion. Spread into prepared dish.

STEP THREE: Combine the bread crumbs with the butter and parsley. Sprinkle over the cream cheese mixture.

PRO TIP: You can make this up to three days in advance and pop in the oven right before your party. Just wait to add the topping until you’re ready to bake! 

How Long to Bake Jalapeno Popper Dip

STEP FOUR: Bake 20 minutes or until hot and bread topping is golden brown.

PRO TIP: This must be served HOT or it will lose its creamy texture.

Making Jalapeno Popper Dip in the Crockpot

Just follow the steps listed above, except put it in a slow cooker instead of a baking dish. 

Cook on high for 2-3 hours. 

This is one of my favorite ways to serve at a game day party since it keeps it hot for everyone for the duration of the party! 

What to Serve with Jalapeno Popper Dip

We like to serve with buttery crackers the best. You can also serve with bread, bagel chips, or tortillas. 

Store leftovers in the fridge wrapped tightly in plastic wrap or in an airtight container. You can reheat in the oven or single-servings in the microwave for up to three days.
