Jalapeno Popper Dip

December 3, 2016 (Last Updated: May 22, 2019)

Jalapeno Poppers made into a dip with cream cheese and sour cream!

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!

Jalapeno dip topped with green onions.

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!

    Loving this dip Kathy, and that you grew your own Anaheim peppers. I will have to check out the heat on the chili jars – I will prob. have to go on the milder side too. I’m in the wimpy camp with you! Have a super week my friend! I’m off to clean the house and decorate!

    Oh, I love jalapenos! And I love cheese…so I’m pretty sure this dip would not be safe in our house. Good use of the Anaheims in this one. This looks like the perfect snack to serve while sitting down to watch some college football bowl games! 🙂

    I’m a spicy wimp, Kathy – so this is perfect for me. I like just a bit of spiciness – not the burn your mouth off kind – so it’s great that you can adjust the amount so easily. I actually have a bunch of jalapeños (TJ only sells them in bags) and don’t know what to do with them. So this recipe is perfect timing.

      We must have the same spicy tolerance….just a tad of heat. Otherwise my mouth is on fire and I can’t taste anything else. Enjoy the dip!
