Jalapeno Popper with Ritz Crackers

Everyone loves dip! Am I right or what? This Jalapeno Popper Dip with Ritz Crackers is loaded with so much cheese. It has cream cheese, Mexican cheese blend, and Parmesan. Toss in some jalapenos and this ultimate cheesy gooey dip packs a spicy punch. Oh!And before you get to all of that you first must break threw the buttery crunchy crumb topping. Crushed Ritz crackers, melted butter, more Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning makes this crunchy topping the perfect layer before all that cheesy spicy deliciousness.

I love jalapeno poppers but they can be time consuming to make. Plus I hate cleaning up after deep frying food. This jalapeno dip is ready in under 30 minutes and clean up is at a minimum.

Cheese is Life!!! Another one of my favorite cheesy dips is my Beer Cheese Dip. It is a crowd pleasing hit at football parties!

Let’s talk Jalapenos

For this recipe I used fresh from the garden jalapenos. Thanks to they guy at work who planted a bunch of jalapeno plants and had more jalapenos than he knew what to do with.

I used 6 large jalapenos. The jalapeno to cheese ratio was great but if you want to add in an extra jalapeno go for it!  Dice the jalapenos and spread evenly on a baking sheet. Roast them in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes. This brings out a lovely jalapeno flavor and the seeds get toasted.

We didn’t find the dip too spicy. The cream cheese and sour cream cools down the spice of jalapenos. I don’t recommend removing the ribs.
