Jalapeño Popper Dip

Recipe originally appearing on the nomlicious Brown Eyed Baker.

You’ll need:

16 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
1 cup mayonnaise
8 pieces bacon, cooked and chopped up
6 jalapeños, minced (or use a 4 oz. can of jalapenos, diced)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp cumin
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

1 cup panko breadcrumbs
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
4 tbs unsalted butter, melted

Begin by preheating your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Combine the cream cheese, mayo, bacon, jalapeños, garlic, cumin, and cheddar cheese in a mixing bowl.  Pour the mixture into a casserole dish or a 9×13 baking dish.

Combine the panko breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, and melted butter in a small bowl, tossing with a fork until the mixture is evenly moistened.  Sprinkle on top of the cream cheese mixture.

Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, until the top is golden brown and the dip is bubbly.  Let it rest for 5 minutes before serving.  Serve with tortilla chips, crackers, veggies, etc.

One bit of this dip elicited an “Oh my God, is is this good!” from my husband.  I’d say it’s a keeper!  It’s cheesy, with a slight kick from the jalapeños.  Perfect for tailgating or football parties!
