  • 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


  • 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).
  • Cool, then chop the jalapeno peppers and set them into a food processor with the remaining ingredients. Process until nice and smooth.
  • Serve into a bowl with chips and enjoy!


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.
