This deliciously creamy and cheesy jalapeno popper inspired dip is sure to become a favorite! You can customize it to make it as hot as you want! If you prepare it as is, there is not much heat.
Hey, y'all! Welcome to Saturday's Snacks where I share with you what we're munching on during the game! Last week I shared with you my deliciously creamy Loaded Baked Potato Dip- a delicious combination of ham, cheese, fresh green onions and ranch flavors.
Can we just take a moment to talk about my love of cheese? Believe it or not... I'm lactose intolerant. True freakin' story! I have learned that some things are worth the belly ache, and cheese is one of them.
I love cheese so much that I highlight it as one of the main ingredients in a majority of my appetizer recipes. Dishes like Warm Chili Cheese Dip, Hot Caramelized Onion Dip with Bacon & Gruyere, Slammin Queso, Million Dollar Pomegranate Cheese Ball, Bacon & Blue Cheese Truffles and my Football Shaped Jalapeno Popper Cheeseball all let my favorite food shine like a Kardashian on the Red Carpet... or in front of the bathroom mirror. Oh, and yes, most of those recipes have the gloriously salty bacon in them! I definitely don't play when it comes to appetizers.
This dip most definitely a family favorite. It's always a hit when I take it to my parents for football games. My mouth is salivating right now just thinking of it! Lucky for me I have a batch waiting for me in the fridge! Before you go any further, I have to tell you this dip doesn't actually have much heat at all! My 4 year old niece tears this stuff up and has never once said it is too hot.
