That’s it, my friends! I hope you enjoy your Jalapeno Popper Dip with Extra Bacon!

Recipe Variations

If you’re concerned about the spiciness of the dip, core out the jalapeno peppers before cooking with them. Most of the heat resides in the whitish innards, so that will reduce the overall heat.

If you’d like a spicier version of the recipe, include more jalapeno peppers, or incorporate some hotter peppers, such as serrano peppers or habanero peppers.

Ghost peppers, anyone?

You can also vary up the amounts of jalapenos and bacon. Include more or less to your preference.

Recipe Notes

Heat Factor: Mild-Medium. The cheeses really tamp down the heat of the jalapenos, though those unaccustomed to eating spicy foods may find this spicy. If you'd like to lower the heat factor, core the jalapenos before cooking with them. For a spicier dish, incorporate your favorite spicy powders and/or peppers with more fire to them.

  1. Cheese+bacon+chili = Holy Trinity!!!
    Mouth-watering recipe, Mike, I’ll try it very soon!


      1. Hey Mike! I just made some dip yesterday, as an appetizer with tortilla chips. It was succulent: cheesy, gently spicy and rich. You didn’t mention the exact cooking time, so I put the dish in the oven at 350°F for almost half an hour and I served it right away! What a success: I received the order to make some for New Year’s Eve!
