Several months ago I had a dip similar to this one at a party. Does anyone else get invited to a lot of parties meant to sell you products? The amount of invitations I receive is astounding, but I try to go if I can to support my friends.
The great upside to these parties are the appetizers (and wine!) that the host will invariably serve. I can say no to handbags, jewelry, and candles, but I can’t pass up a party platter! I’m afraid I made somewhat of a pig of myself as I devoured this jalapeño cream cheese dip, but it was so good I could not stop eating it! I decided to recreate it at home — with my own special touches.
It’s been a favorite dip ever since then, quite possibly surpassing the crowd-pleasing Chili Cheese Bean Dip and my favorite Fiesta Bean Dip! I’m not sure how to describe it other than that it’s a loaded cream cheese dip. It has cheddar cheese, green chiles, jalapeños and bacon!
The jalapeño peppers give it the tiniest bit of kick, which I love. If you’re making it for your family or a crowd who you know can handle the heat, use hot jalapeños instead of mild! The cream cheese keeps things cool enough.
I love chips and dip so much I could eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner! While many people look forward to autumn for the changing leaves and pumpkin spiced everything, I most look forward to football season starting and all the delicious dips that go along with Sunday gatherings.
This dip is so easy, there are really no special instructions I need to give you. Simply mix everything together then bake until hot and bubbly. It can be served with a variety of veggies, crackers, or chips for dipping. You’ll want to slather this on everything!
