Jalapeno Popper Dip

Here's a fantastic way to deliver all that blazing jalapeno popper taste without the work. Whenever I bring this jalapeno popper dip recipe to a party, I'm always asked for the recipe. Serve with corn chips, tortilla chips or butter crackers. —Jennifer Wilke, Collinsville, Illinois
  • Total Time
    Prep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min.
  • Makes
    16 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chiles
  • 1 can (4 ounces) diced jalapeno peppers
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Sliced green onions, optional
  • Corn chips, tortilla chips or assorted crackers

Directions

  • In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, mayonnaise, cheddar, chiles, peppers and 1/4 cup Parmesan until blended. Spoon into an ungreased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish.
  • In a small bowl, combine the bread crumbs, oil and remaining Parmesan. Sprinkle over cheese mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 20-25 min. or until golden brown. Sprinkle with green onions, if desired. Serve with chips or crackers.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • In Europe, Parmigiano-Reggiano and Parmesan are considered the same cheese. But in the U.S., Parmesan is a generic term that may not come from Italy’s Parmigiano-Reggiano region. Using the authentic Italian cheese (in a lesser amount than the original’s ½ cup) ensures a cheesy richness in the makeover with less fat and calories.
  • Sharp cheddar cheese has been aged longer than regular cheddar. As cheese ages, its flavor becomes more pronounced. Using aged cheese in a recipe can add complexity and rich flavor, even to humble favorites like mac ’n’ cheese.

      This recipe was a total hit! I followed the recipe but then also added one Jalopeno pepper, finely diced and deseeded and one teaspoon Dry Ranch Seasoning. I served with scoop corn chips. I went to a party last night, and People raved about this, and the dish was totally bare, nothing left at all! People even scraped the sides of the dish lol. I found my new go to appetizer for the holiday season!

      I took this to a backyard get together, served it warm and everyone wanted to just keep eating this dish - almost forgot about the burgers. The ONLY change I made was to us Panko bread crumbs instead of regular seasoned bread crumbs, and I very lightly sprinkled chili powder over the top of the bread crumbs before baking - made for a pretty presentation. KEEPER.

      I did as directed, however, when it came out of the oven and cooled I added 1 cup sour cream and mixed well. Refrigerated a day and it was fantastic.

      Fantastic!! I didn't have canned jalapenos, so I used four jalapenos that I seeded and chopped very fine. Made it for a potluck and everyone raved about it!!
