A couple years ago, my mom gave me this really strange and complicated recipe for jalapeno popper dip. She picked it up while on vacation somewhere, and thought I would like it. Well it hung on my fridge for awhile, in fact it’s still there, until last week when I decided to give it a try. Unfortunately, though the recipe was clearly written, the steps were complicated and there was a high probability for failure. Anything that involves cooking mayo is a potentially disastrous endeavor! So I created my own using similar ingredients, and it came out perfectly!
Jalapeno Popper Dip
- 8oz cream cheese
- 1/2 cup mayo
- diced pickled jalapenos to taste (I used about 1/4 cup), drained
- 1/3 cup panko breadcrumbs
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar
Combine cream cheese, mayo, and diced jalapenos. Microwave for ONE minute. Stir well.
Combine bread crumbs and panko, cover the cream cheese mixture completely. Microwave 2-4 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
Serve with a michelada and heavy duty tortilla chips for dipping!
