I've been told by fellow party-goers that this recipe tastes exactly like a jalapeno popper. I like that it can be made without much fuss. —Ariane McAlpine, Penticton, British Columbia

"Followed the recipe exactly, but added cooked/crumbled bacon on top. Excellent!"

"I made this for a Christmas appetizer and it was real good! The corn chips are definitely better with this spread than tortilla chips."

"First time making this and it was a big hit! I have made traditional bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers but this was a lot easier. I made it exactly how the recipe says except I sprinkled bacon on the very top. It was awesome!!! I might add a bit more jalapenos next time. Definitely a crowd pleaser. I served with Ritz and those I thought paired better than tortilla chips"

"I used to make this for every party before going vegan so I tried to make this again using vegan cream cheese, vegan mayo, and vegan cheese and it turned out JUST as amazing. No one even noticed my substitions!"
