We LOVE this spicy but not too spicy dip with buttery crackers! I made it for a snack while watching tv the other night. The bowl was empty after the first show. Once you start you just keep on a munchin! Yum!

This is another of our new favorites that I made for the Superbowl. It was a huge hit! Served with crackers and Stavy's Pita Chips. Oh so good!

My DH and I shared this while waiting for the ball to drop on New Years. It was great with baked Italian bread and mini pita pockets!

Brought for a holiday pot luck and it was eaten and enjoyed by all who attended. I even got asked for the recipe! I served crackers, pita chips and tortilla chips with it. It went well with all three. A super dooper dip!

This really does taste like jalepeno poppers. How great that it is an easy put-together recipe that delivers a punch packed with authentic flavor. My son who is picky, picky over foods he doesn’t recognize, took the plunge and tasted it and loved it because it tasted like the familiar jalepeno poppers. He requested that I make it again. I realized I didn’t have panko bread crumbs so I made my own using white bread which I had in the pantry. I wish I had finely grated the parmesan that went over the top, but instead I grated the cheese on the medium setting, next time it’ll be finely grated because it was a bit difficult to dip in your cracker. Ya live and ya learn. Thank you MelMel for sharing your recipe that will be a new addition to my “Keeper Dip” files!
