Are you looking for the perfect easy appetizer recipe for you next get together? Let me show you a recipe that is perfect for your football watch party. This jalapeno popper dip is a crowd pleaser for sure!
Let me show you how simple this is to make.
- 8 oz block of cream cheese, at room temperature
- 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded (divided in half)
- 1 cup Panko breadcrumbs
- 2 T Italian seasoning
- 3 jalapenos, de-seeded and diced
- 4 T butter, melted
Gather up your ingredients.
In a large bowl mix together the cream cheese, sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese and 1/2 a cup of the Parmesan cheese.
Once it is well combined, add the diced jalapenos.
Put the mixture in a square baking dish.
Spread it out evenly.
For the topping grab your Panko breadcrumbs and add the Italian seasoning.
Stir in the melted butter.
Mix well to make a crumbled topping.
Evenly distribute the breadcrumb topping over the cream cheese mixture.
Top with the remaining 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese.
Pop it in a 350° oven for 20*25 minutes or until well melted.
Use tortilla chips or toasted bread slices for dipping.
It is so yummy and we did not find it spicy at all. I think in part this is because I de-seeded the peppers.
I love it with tortilla chips, personally.
When I cook, I always have paper towels handy. Seriously- they are always on my shopping list. Making this dip was no exception. Bounty is 2x more absorbent and it it’s been around for 50 years to clean up all of the big game day party messes!
