Our incredibly creamy Jalapeño Popper Dip is an ideal addition to any gathering, and it’s remarkably simple to prepare. Originating from our Super Bowl party tradition years ago, this dip has remained a steadfast favorite in appetizer spreads ever since.

If you’ve hesitated to try this dip because of the pepper’s heat, worry not! The cream cheese offers a wonderfully cooling effect, and we’ve opted for a milder variety of jalapeños with fantastic flavor but a gentle kick. While we adore spicy dishes, we understand that not everyone shares our enthusiasm! You have the option to adjust the heat level to your preference.

I wanted to highlight the Tamed Jalapeños we’ve been using (not a paid promotion), just a friendly recommendation. Mezzetta offers a fantastic range of jarred jalapeños, from the Tamed variety we prefer here to medium and hot, options!

All the great flavor an texture of a classic Jalapeño Popper without the hassle!

  • Serve with tortilla chips or crispy baguette slices for dipping.
  • Pair with crunchy vegetable sticks such as carrots, celery, or bell peppers for a refreshing contrast.
  • Spread on toasted bread or crackers for a tasty appetizer.
  • Use as a topping for baked potatoes or nachos for an extra kick of flavor.
  • Dollop onto tacos, burgers, or grilled sandwiches for a zesty twist.
  • Incorporate into stuffed mushrooms or jalapeño poppers for a double dose of jalapeño goodness.
