This baked jalapeno popper dip recipe is easy to make and is always a hit with family and friends at holiday gatherings.
Holiday entertaining doesn't have to be difficult or expensive. I create simple, yet delicious recipes when throwing a party. Creating simple dip recipes ensures that they will be a success and reduces the stress I feel as the hostess organizing a party.
One of my favorite dips to make for holiday parties is Jalapeno Popper Dip. It has all the great flavors of Jalapeno Poppers, but it is a lot easier to make. Instead of hand stuffing peppers, you whip up all the ingredients and serve it as a dip.
I further reduced the prep time for this dip by using Kraft Mexican Cheddar Jack cheese. Since the cheese was already a blend of my favorite cheeses to use in Jalapeno Popper Dip, cheddar and Monterrey Jack, I saved time on shredding cheese.
In the below video, I demonstrate how I make the dip and I show you how I dice jalapeno peppers without touching the seeds.
To save money on my holiday parties by planning my menu early and then looking for coupons and sales on the ingredients. I was able to use Kraft coupons to save money on the cheese and mayonnaise that I used in my Jalapeno Popper Dip. I found Kraft coupons at Target to save on this dip recipe.
