Our Bacon Jalapeno Popper Dip is one of our absolute favorite party and tailgate food. It’s a crowd favorite and is perfect just about year round.
I absolutely love making cream cheese stuffed Jalapenos, wrapped in bacon, and tossed on the grill.
The only problem with making my normal jalapeno poppers is that it’s a pain in the ass to make and cook. It also makes one hell of a mess on my grill, which is really annoying.
Because of the work and mess it makes, I normally only make these once or twice a year during football season. Bacon Jalapeno Popper Dip was invented more as a necessity. I was looking for a much easier way to create the flavors of my normal jalapeno poppers without all the fuss.
Bacon Jalapeno Popper Dip also feeds a heck of a lot more people too.
Folks seem to really like bacon appetizers too.
If you are having a bacon themed party, this one is perfect as it leaves you more time for make other bacon appetizers like Bacon Wrapped baby Potatoes, Sweet Bacon Crackers, and Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts.
For Bacon Jalapeno Popper Dip, you’ll need bacon, jalapenos, pickled jalapenos, Monterrey jack cheese, Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, cream cheese, mayonnaise, Ritz crackers, and some butter. Pretty much all of my favorite ingredients.
Simply chop up all of the ingredients except the Ritz crackers, put into a large mixing bowl, and mix well.
Place into a 9×9 baking dish or small baking dishes like those in the photos. Sprinkle the top with some butter loaded crumbled Ritz crackers and Parmesan cheese. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes and you’ll be the hit of your next party.Print
