This has all the flavor of jalapeno poppers in an easy to make dip! I have mixed the Parmesan cheese in with the dip and omitted the cracker and butter topping, but baked as usual, too.

We LOVED this! I had no issues w/ it being too salty or greasy. I did 1/2 the recipe and use pickled diced jalapeno peppers in place of the fresh b/c that's what I had on hand. Loved the buttery cracker topping! All of the flavors went great together...a definite keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :) Read More

I looked at the reviews concerning this recipe and decided I would follow the original except for some small modifications. I used 10 medium size jalepenos with seeds, 2 more ounces cream cheese, 1 1/4 c cheddar cheese, and 3/4 c mozzerala. We had no issues with the dip being greasy or even close to it. Perfect dip for a large number of people. If you are entertaining less than six, I would recommend cutting the recipe in half. Will make this dip over and over, we loved it!! Read More

This has quickly become a favorite among my family and friends at gatherings. I double the amount of jalapenos added garlic to the cheese mix and chives to the topping for some added color. I usually use the Italian blend cheese instead of just motz or whatever I have on hand. Last time i added a little muenster cheese mmmmm. Read More

I've been making this filling for years. It's just a basic cheeseball recipe adding bacon jalapenos and a crumb topping. I don't understand why mayonnaise is always added as an ingredient. It's unnecessary. Just ensure cream cheese is very soft. This doesn't yield a party size amount so if entertaining double. More than 5 jalapenos are needed for a true jalapeno flavor. If you drain the bacon properly won't be greasier. I mean it is a cheese dish. Some grease won't be avoided. I also season with a little garlic pepper. Read More

This recipe is great! Just made it for football games yesterday and the family loved it. I did make a few alterations to accommodate what ingredients I had on hand; instead of green onions I grated about a quarter of a Spanish onion into the cheese mixture. I had no mozzarella cheese so I used all white cheddar and I added a few cloves of garlic because I'm incapable of making anything without a little garlic. I omitted the bacon because I failed to ration it and had to use what I had crisped for potato skins. I also used half mayonnaise and half sour cream simply because I like the tangy flavor of the sour cream. I made a half recipe but used 4 whole jalapenos because we like hot and spicy foods. Some reviewers have commented that this turned out greasy. I've noticed in my years of cooking experience that the quality of the ingredients specifically the cheddar cheese makes a huge difference. I made the mistake of preparing a family favorite casserole with a store brand shredded cheddar cheese and the end result was a very greasy dish that I found inedible. The other times I've made that same casserole I used a much better cheddar cheese and the dish was never greasy. A better cheese will give you a better end result and the price difference is negligible. I used Cabot Alpine Cheddar in this recipe and it was just delicious. Read More

I have a huge family with a lot of great recipes but there are a LOT of people aged 13-25 in my family and they always me to make this at our family gatherings! I drain the bacon and do just sour cream instead of mayonnaise. I serve with corn chips quinoa chips or regular tortillas chips. Everybody loves it!! Read More
