  • 6 jalapeno peppers
  • 16 ounces cream cheese 2 packages
  • 6 ounces shredded white cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon ancho chili powder or use smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Spicy chili pepper flakes for serving


  1. Roast the jalapeno peppers over an open flame, flipping them here and there, until the skins blacken and char. Alternatively, you can roast them in a broiler not too close to the flame until the skins blacken and bubble up. About 5 minutes (or 15 in the oven).
  2. Cool, then chop the jalapeno peppers and set them into a food processor with the remaining ingredients. Process until nice and smooth.
  3. Serve into a bowl with chips and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

This jalapeno cream cheese dip is nice and thick. If you'd like to thin it out, add in a half cup of beer or broth and process until whipped and creamy. A bubbly lemon-lime soda works great as well.
