How do you make jalapeno popper dip?

This popular appetizer is surprisingly easy to make. Follow these instructions to make it for yourself today or that upcoming holiday celelbration!

First you need to add all the ingredients to a bowl. Yes, that’s right. It truly is as simple as whisking together all the mentioned ingredients until fully combined. you can do this in a small bowl or food processor. Then into the cream cheese mixture, you canned whatever other aromatics you like such as spices, herbs or even vegan parmesan cheese and garlic powder for extra flavor.

Once the ingredients are combined, simply transfer to a baking dish and spread evenly. I recommend placing on top of a baking sheet in the oven before baking in case the dip bubbles over. Add some of the panko bread crumbs to the top of the dip and bake.

When the dip is nearly done, I like to add some extra bread crumbs. Some people choose to add crushes ritz crackers or other bread crumb substitutes, but panko is always my go to.

Top with the green onion and it’s ready to serve!

Jalapeno popper dip has a little bit zest to it, but it is not entirely spicy due to the lack of pepper seeds within. The flesh of the peppers themselves are mildly spicy.
