This jalapeno popper dip is an easy cream cheese-based appetizer dip that will please any crowd!

jalapeno popper dip

Whip up an easy appetizer for your next party!

Try this crowd-pleasing Jalapeno Popper Dip! It has the same yummy flavors of a traditional jalapeno popper in an easy to serve and easy to eat dip.

Originally, this was inspired by a Kraft recipe, and we’re so happy we tried it because it’s no longer on the back of the cream cheese boxes nor can I find it on their website.

The best part? This recipe requires only seven ingredients, and you most likely have a few of them already in your pantry!

This jalapeno popper dip will turn anyone into an instant spicy lover!

If you know anyone who isn’t a fan of spicy foods, this balanced appetizer is the way to convert them. The cheesy blend complements the jalapenos perfectly, and you’ll have the entire household wanting more. The crushed crackers as a topping give it a wonderful crunch. It’s comfort food at its finest.

The dip is supposed to be served warm, however, it is also yummy cool or at room temperature. Try the dip with your favorite crackers or chips.

There’s really no other way to describe this other than convenient, delicious, and easy.

It’s so good it’ll be gone within minutes!

This is going to be such a fan favorite. According to readers who have tried this, there are never any leftovers… it’s THAT good. This would be a perfect addition to a potluck or any get-togethers you may have approaching!

A friend of mine recently made this dip, and it was gone in a flash so consider doubling it and serving it in a larger pan if you expect a big crowd (or people who are coming with big appetites!). Enjoy!

    Lina,
    This recipe sounds SO good! Is this the recipe your friend used? I am always looking for good things to take to covered dish suppers or get-togethers. Thanks!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yes! I asked her and made it myself. Yum! A great one to take to a potluck 🙂

  2. Rae

    Omg one of those recipes that makes me want to LEAP off the paleo bandwagon. I <3 poppers and this looks amazing.

  3. Trish

    Looks yummy! I’m having some ladies over in a couple weeks and was looking for something just like this! Can’t wait to give it a whirl! Thanks!

    How does anyone think it would taste with reduced fat cream cheese and mayonase?

    • Kelly

      I made jalapeño popper hamburgers one time with low fat cream cheese and it didn’t taste too great.

    • Jennifer B.

      The Kraft recipe (this was adapted from) calls for reduced fat mayo. I often cook with the reduced fat cream cheese and haven’t noticed a difference, so I would think it would be worth a try.

      • mel

        I have an amazing spinach artichoke dip that gets requested for potlucks. I tried it once with reduced fat cream cheese and it totally changed the consistency of the dip. I thin b/c low fat has more water to compensate for the missing fat and dishes are not as creamy.

    • shelly

      i use the 1/3 less fat cream cheese for everything and no one can ever tell. It just spreads easier.

  5. e

    I skip the topping. We’re all vegan but I like to bring a vegan and non vegan dish to get togethers. This is always a hit.

  6. Brindha

    Looks yummy…. Will be awesome for a crowd!

  7. Jarrod

    Made jalapeños poppers last week my face almost slide off they were so hot, looks tasty though

    • Csandst1

      Remove the seeds and rinse to reduce heat even more.

  8. Daniel

    This with bacon ritz sounds awesome. thanks!

    • Ger

      Good call, those bacon ritz are great!

      • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

        Yes and actually I saw another version today with chopped bacon in the cheese. Omg..lol 🙂

        • Lisa

          I make poppers wrapped in bacon rather than breading, was going to comment this same exact thing…that some bacon would surely improve this recipe!

  9. Ger

    Thanks Lina, you’ve done it again, another great recipe!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      You’re welcome!

  10. Tracy

    Love Jalapeno poppers. Can’t wait to try this!!

  11. Jaime

    Looks yummy and i bet it would also be good with crab mixed in 🙂

  12. rob

  13. Alejandra Martin

  14. arielm

  15. Janine felix

    Is this dip supposed to b served warm?

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yes although it’s still yummy as it cools.

  16. Donna

    I have made this before and it is very good, never any leftover for the next day

  17. BlueHarvest

    I use Italian style bread crumbs instead of crackers for topping. The most asked-for appetizer I make!!
