Simply Irresistible Jalapeño Popper Dip
A time-tested crowd-pleaser! This jalapeno popper dip is rich, creamy, and mildly spicy.
Oh my gosh, oh my gosh!
I’m so excited!
…You know how I go gaga over all things cheese, right? Well, I have yet another cheesy dip for you today. And this one has BACON in it! So naturally it’s the best dip ever! Right??
Jalapeño poppers are my favorite appetizer, but I almost prefer this dip version! Mostly because it’s 10 times easier to make than those individual snacks. And it still has that signature can’t-get-enough kind of amazing taste! It’s not just my opinion though, it’s proven time and time again at every party I’ve served it. Always disappears first.
Ok, enough rambling, grab a bag of chips and let’s get to dipping!
It’s so easy to make this dip and I feel silly to include step-by-step tutorial, but it’s a habit, so there you have it.
If you’re making this for a party, you can totally prepare everything a day in advance. And right before your guests show up, just sprinkle the Panko topping and pop it into the oven. A warm and cheesy dip will be ready for your guests in no time!
Seriously, if this is not an easy appetizer, I don’t know what is!
Jalapeno Popper Dip
Yield: 6-8 servings
- 2 tablespoons Panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
- 2 tablespoons grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
- ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
- 3 jalapeños
- 8oz (225gr) cream cheese, softened
- 1/3 cup (75r) sour cream

- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 4 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
- Tortilla chips for serving
- Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
- In a small dish, mix together panko, Parmigiano-Reggiano, and black pepper.
- Cut the jalapeños in half length-wise. Remove the seeds and ribs inside. (If you want spicy dip, reserve some of the seeds.) Chop the seeded jalapeños into small pieces.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, sour cream, cheddar cheese, garlic powder and Worcestershire sauce.
- Add cooked bacon and chopped jalapeños and mix until well combined.
- Transfer the filling into a baking dish. Spread the filling evenly and sprinkle the Panko topping.

- Serve immediately with tortilla chips.
