My garden is still producing jalapeños like crazy so I’m finding a new jalapeno recipe each week to make. This dip is so wonderful! It’s probably the best jalapeno dip I’ve had to-date. I doubled the jalapeños since mine were small and added a bit extra Panko to cover the thin spots.

Crowd pleaser! Everybody loves it, every time I make it.

I made this for a birthday party. It seemed to go over well. I doubled the recipe since it was for a crowd. I put more bacon than the recipe called for because we like bacon! I also added a dash or two of fajita seasoning. I've made stuffed peppers before and they needed a little something and the fajita seasoning did it!

This was a waste of my time. It was terrible. It was very bland for all of the ingredients. I was surprised how bad it was after so many rave reviews. I will not make this again. My husband said "you can lose that recipe".

I had extra jalape?os left over from making jalape?o poppers so I decided to make this dish. I like the idea that it is. Same flavor as the poppers, without as much of a mess. I added a few extra jalape?os, but I still did not think it was spicy enough. I could hardly taste any spice, but maybe I had mild jalape?os. For anyone making this for the first time, I would test a piece of jalape?o first to see how spicy it is, and then add more or less for your taste. The only other issue I had was that I think there is too much breadcrumbs in this. Next time I make it I will cut the amount in half just so it isn't as bready on top. Other than that I thought it was great and I would definitely make it again!

Unless you have a large family, don't make this unless you have company. It is so good, and you can't quit eating it. I did add more jalapenos and it still wasn't too hot.

This was excellent! Only had regular breadcrumbs and used pimento cheese spread that I had on hand, instead of cheddar. Will make again.

I just made this and it was over the top delicious! I made one change, because I was out of Panko bread crumbs, I used crushed tortilla chips for the topping. WoW! Everyone loved it.

Loved this. Instead of jalape?o peppers, I used 5 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (removed the seeds to cut back on the heat). Doubled the bacon. Delish!
