Imagine taking your favorite jalapeno poppers and turning them into a dip! Yep! That’s what this is – Jalapeno Popper Dip!  A small colorful plate with chips and cheesy dip.

I really enjoy jalapeno poppers but sometimes there are a few drawbacks; they take a little while to stuff all the peppers and sometimes the jalapenos are a bit too spicy for me.

I guess I’m a little wimpy when it comes to eating something too spicy. This jalapeno popper dip is just what I need…super easy to make and I control the heat with the number of jalapenos going into the dish!

One of the secrets to getting great pepper flavor without adding too much spice is using mild peppers in this dip. I used Anaheim peppers that we grew this summer. I roasted the peppers and froze them. Anaheims are a pretty mild pepper.

This can also be made with canned chili peppers that you buy in the store. They are already roasted, peeled, seeded and chopped! Even easier! When buying at the store check the side of the can for the level of  heat from the peppers. You can usually buy mild, medium, or hot!

Fresh jalapenos are also added….but just as much as you think you can handle!
