"I needed an appetizer that was fast and easy to prepare and would travel well to a holiday party at our neighbor's house. I'm not a huge fan of jalapeno poppers because they can be a little too spicy for my taste but this dip was delicious. My husband didn't care for the panko crumbs and said they were unnecessary but everyone else at the party liked them and I thought the crumbs were a good addition to the dish. I used light mayo and I think a person could use light cream cheese to further reduce the calories. I would have liked to have seen nutritional information with this recipe but...maybe ignorance is bliss in this case. You'll find yourself scooping up the last of this dip before the calorie reality sets in. :)"

"It isn't bad as is but could use some adjustments, imo. Mayonnaise is unnecessary, just ensure cream cheese is very soft. This doesn't yield a party size amount, so if entertaining, double. Much better with fresh jalapenos. I also add bacon, thoroughly drained so not too greasy and scallions. I also season with a little garlic pepper."
