This jalapeno popper dip takes the amazing, spicy, cheesy, and bacony flavor of poppers and turns them into a dip that’s about as cheesy as it gets and is completely addictive.
Cliff Notes: Cook bacon until crisp; sauté onions and peppers until softened; combine with remaining dip ingredients and spoon into oven-proof dish; top with mixture of panko, cheese, and seasoning; bake at 350° for 20-30 minutes until golden brown and heated through.
Make It Your Own: – Add more or less chopped jalapenos, depending on how spicy you like it. – Mix in corn kernels for little bites of sweetness. – Make it a day ahead, cover, and refrigerate. Add 5-10 minutes to the baking time.
