This Jalapeño Popper Cheese Dip is spicy, simply delicious, easy to make, and oh so cheesy! This is really the perfect appetizer! Whether you are planning a party for the big game or are just looking for some finger foods for family game night, this hot appetizer will definitely hit the spot!

When you are making this dip, here are some key tips to keep in mind:

Jalapeños – fresh or canned can be used.

Cream cheese – you can use lite or regular.

Mayonnaise – your family's favorite brand will do.

Cheese – this is where your taste and family's taste comes into play. You can create your own combination of favorite flavors if don't like the combination I use in the recipe.

Oh, and one other key thing to remember. Use disposable food grade gloves when handling and dicing the peppers. The oils from the peppers will get under your nails and can cause all kinds of problems.


Step 1: Preheat your oven. If you are using a cast iron skillet, put that into the oven to preheat as well. Also, lay out the cream cheese so it can soften.

Step 2: Prepare the peppers.

Step 3: Mix together the ingredients with the mixer.

Step 4: Add in the remaining ingredients.

Step 5: Add everything into the skillet of your choice.

Step 6: Bake in the oven until hot and cheesy.

Step 7: Serve with bread or chips.
