bacon jalapeno popper dip
If you’re looking for an amazing dip, you’ve come to the right place! This bacon jalapeno popper dip will impress the heck out of your friends/family and will disappear in minutes. It’s perfect for your upcoming Superbowl Party, I’ve already claimed it for my family’s big game day party appetizer, YUM!! I’m not exaggerating when I say this whole dip was gone in less than ten minutes. I set it on the table then took the dog outside to go to the bathroom. We played a quick game of tug o’ war and when I came back, the empty dish was by the sink. I asked my hubby who in the heck ate it that fast and he sheepishly admitted he ate half of it. HA!! Well, there’s his dinner for the night! Our four kids and niece finished off the rest. I was stuck scraping the sides with Food Should Taste Good™ Jalapeno chips. Typical.
Such an easy recipe and you probably have most of the items on hand. Well, if you’re like my AZ dwelling family who adores Mexican food, you will! I was out of fresh jalapenos but had the rest hangin’ around.

Original recipe credit goes to Food Should Taste Good™, we added some cumin + extra cheese to spice/fatten it up a smidge.
I was tempted to dig in with that giant spoon… :: Enter self-restraint::
The debate wasn’t about whether the dip was good…but which chip flavor they liked better? I had them sample the classic Cantina chip and the flavorful Jalapeno chip:
