Jalapeno Popper Dip

So like many of you, I was faced with what to prepare for last week’s Super Bowl game. I had plenty to choose from, however I wanted to do something a bit different for the party that our cousins were hosting. For some odd reason my first reaction was thinking about all of the great bar food, and sure enough chicken wings and jalapeno poppers immediately came to mind, that and an adult version of pigs in a blanket, which I will share with you later in the week.

Jalapeno Popper Dip Recipe

I really did not feel like spending a lot of time stuffing jalapenos for the poppers, so I thought that by using all of the great stuff that goes into a popper, along with a few extra items, that this would sure be a great hit, and man, was it ever!

This dip has all the comfort you need, along with just a bit of heat, and is a perfect appetizer for any game day, or party you put together.  Lets get started.


  • 2 80z packages of cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 cup of Monterey Jack Cheese
  • 1 cup of Mayonnaise
  • 1 head of garlic, roasted
  • 1 cup of grated Parmesan cheese, divided in half
  • 3 fresh Jalapeno peppers, seeded and cored, diced
  • 3 fresh Serrano peppers, seeded and cored, diced
  • 1 cup of Panko breadcrumbs
  • 6 tbsp of unsalted butter, melted
  • French baguette, thinly sliced
How to make jalapeno popper dip recipe

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Add all but the panko, butter, and half a cup of parmesan to a mixing bowl. Mix well to incorporate all of the cheese and peppers into the cream cheese. Lightly grease small ramekins, or a small casserole dish and place the cheese mixture into it. In another bowl add your breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, and melted butter. Mix well, and place on top of the cheese mixture, making an even coating.  Place in the oven for about 30 minutes until the breadcrumbs are nice and golden brown and the cheese is nice and hot.

Serve with the slices of French baguette, pretzel rods, or tortilla chips. Trust me on this one, it was a real hit, and had all of the flavors of a great jalapeno popper. I hope you enjoy it.

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.

  1. Delicious looking! I will most likely roast and skin the peppers when I try this, because I like a mellower smoky pepper flavor.

    I read your blog all the time and love it! Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. This was so good, it’ll be hard to go back to any other spread or dip. It is so creamy and yummy, you can’t go wrong with this appetizer for any occasion!
