Poppin Jalapeno Dip

Calling all football fans!

Are you ready for the big game coming up next month? I recently became a football fan (*GASP* I know!), and am really looking forward to watching the game – and the commercials – with family next month. Already, I have watched more football in the last month than I probably ever have. And some of the time my husband isn’t even around. I watch football All. By. Myself. Crazy, right?

So now, with my newfound “like” of the game of football, (I can’t say “love” just yet, but I do like the game a bit) I am really looking forward to the big game early next month. And we all know that great football watching is usually accompanied by some good eats! For this year’s game, I will make a Poppin’ Jalapeno Dip to serve as an appetizer. We should have some family over and I’m sure everyone is going to love it.

It started with a trip to Tony’s Finer Foods, my go-to grocery store for all things Hispanic. They have the products that I’m looking for, manufactured by the brands I love, at really great prices.

For this particular recipe, I knew I needed some sliced jalapenos – it is a jalapeno dip, after all! So where did I head first? The (large!) Hispanic aisle, of course! I always use La Morena products whenever possible – they are the best. They are the leader in the chiles and peppers category, of course, and I love the authentic Mexican taste of their products.

Then it was off to pick up the rest of the ingredients and I was on my way.

Jalapeno Dip Ingredients

This is one of my husband’s favorite dips that I make. It’s really easy, and it comes out super gooey and cheesy! You’ll have to find your own super-cute helper though.

First, mix the sour cream and cream cheese in a large bowl, then stir in the cheeses.

Then for the jalapeno heat, add the diced jalapeno peppers.

Then smooth all that cheesy goodness in a baking pan. Then prepare the bread crumbs with melted butter and parmesan cheese.

What you’re left with is a heavenly (and mildly spicy) melted cheese snack you can enjoy on game day. Will you be watching?


Here’s the full recipe.


  • 1 (7 oz) can La Morena Sliced Green Pickled Jalapeno Peppers, drained and finely chopped
  • 1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 lb mild cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 cup + ½ cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 cup Italian bread crumbs
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted


  • In a large bowl, combine cream cheese and sour cream with a hand mixer.
  • Add cheddar cheese, 1 cup parmesan cheese, and chopped jalapenos, mix well.
  • Spoon into 8×8 baking dish, spread evenly.
  • Mix bread crumbs, melted butter, and ¼ cup shredded parmesan cheese until crumbly.
  • Sprinkle the crumb topping evenly over the cream cheese mixture.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, or until hot and breadcrumbs are golden brown.
  • Serve with tortilla chips and enjoy!
