"This is a hot cheesy dip with spicy flavors of jalapeno peppers and a crunchy panko bread crumb topping. I made this for a pot luck at school and it was a huge hit. This recipe can easily be multiplied to make for a large crowd."

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!

This is one irresistible appetizer dip that wows. Made half a recipe for a trial run- winner! So much so I have just now printed out an extra copy to add to my Holiday Cookbook. This is so on for one of my holiday appetizer dips. Can't wait to serve to my family and friends!

Mel I made your dip for Shawn and I and it came out so good that we sat watching television and ate the whole thing scooping it up with pita triangles. What a great dip. I am going to make it for the Super Bowl party coming up and I know it will be a hit with everyone. Love this stuff!
