Who all loves jalapeno poppers?  *raises hand emphatically*  One thing I don’t like though, is all the time it takes to make them.  It’s a lot of work, and I’d much rather be able to spend that time with my family!

This cheesy jalapeno popper dip has an added element that makes it extra special… bacon!  Everything is better with bacon right?  And not just any bacon… NatureRaised Farms Hickory Bacon.  It’s my new favorite!  Thick, butcher’s cut bacon, with no added hormones.  Basically, it’s the bacon you NEED to try.

Ingredients
  • 16 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup mayo
  • 4 oz can diced jalapenos drained
  • 4 oz can diced green chiles drained
  • 1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 6 slices cooked and crumbled bacon divided
  • 1/3 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter melted
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray baking dish with non-stick spray and set aside.  I use my quiche pan, but any shallow baking dish will work.

  2. Add softened cream cheese and mayo to a mixing bowl and beat with a hand mixer until smooth and combined.  Add 1/2 the bacon, jalapenos, green chiles, cumin, and mexican and mozzarella cheeses.

  3. Transfer to prepared dish, smooth out with a rubber spatula.

  4. Combine melted butter, panko, and Parmesan cheese.  Sprinkle over the top of the dip.  Sprinkle remaining bacon pieces over the top.

  5. Bake for 25 minutes, until panko is lightly golden brown and dip is bubbling.

  6. If desired, top cooked dip with slices of fresh jalapeno.  Serve hot.

  1. Does this dip need to be placed on a warmer to serve hot or when it cools to room temp is it still tasty?  Taking to a party just need to know if it needs to stay warm for serving.

  2. I wanted to make this in a Crock-Pot for tonight. However, now I am thinking the topping may not be good this way. Thoughts?

  3. This dip is always a hit! Made it the first time for a weekend getaway with a few friends and it was devoured in minutes, everyone asked me where the recipe was from. It’s my go to for a crowd pleaser! 

  4. can you make this and freeze it?

  5. I’m pretty sure I’ve made this recipe 50 times already in the past year.  Just made tonight.  Make sure you buy PANKO breadcrumbs and real mayo.  It is what makes the dip! So delicious!!

  7. I have made this dip several times and it is a huge hit. No changes except sometimes I add the bacon and sometimes I don’t – it’s a huge hit either way. I think it’s better with the bacon……of course it is right? 🙂

  9. I’m making it a head of time for a Christmas party tomorrow. I have it made and an baking tomorrow, just wondering if I can put the topping on too or if I have to wait?

    Thanks

    • Hi Janine 🙂 I’ve never made it ahead for a party, but I think for the best results, I’d add the topping before baking, not overnight.

    • I have made this dip 2 days ahead. I leave off the topping. The day of the gathering, I bring it to room temperature add topping then bake. Make the topping ahead too and just store in a separate container – one less thing you have to worry about on the party day!

  10. Can one make this in a crock pot?

  11. The recipe calls for “Mexican Cheese.” This is extremely vague. There are only about 14 types of “Mexican Cheese.” Can you be more specific?
