Bacon Jalapeno Popper Dip – Recipe

My favorite jalapeno popper dip recipe made with loads of bacon, it is extra cheesy, creamy, and just the right amount of spicy. It's the perfect party appetizer.

  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded pepperjack or Monterrey Jack cheese
  • 1/2 pound cooked bacon chopped (or more as desired)
  • 1/3 cup mayo
  • ½ cup Mexican crema or sour cream
  • 2 jalapeno peppers finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro + more for garnish
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Add all of the ingredients to a large mixing bowl, but reserve some of the shredded cheeses, chopped jalapenos and cilantro for garnish.
  • Mix everything until it is fully combined, then spread into a baking dish. Top with the reserved shredded cheeses.
  • Bake about 15 minutes at 350 degrees F, or until the jalapeno popper dip cheeses are nicely bubbly.
  • Remove and top with the reserved jalapenos and cilantro.
  • Serve with chips!



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.
