Jalapeno Popper Dip will definitely be a party favorite!
In the spirit of our last Tailgate Recipe for this series, I have decided to post a new recipe that I made at our latest tailgate party this past weekend. I decided to make this recipe because a few weekends earlier I had been at my friend, Kelly Noren’s house and she had made a similar recipe and I loved it! I did not end up getting the recipe from her, so, I had to create my own and it came out great!
If you love Jalapeno Poppers you will love this dip. It is spicy and it tastes just like a jalapeno popper! You can cut the heat down by using mild or medium jalapenos. The green chilies also give it a great flavor. If you like sausage in your jalapeno poppers you can substitute a pound of cooked sausage (I like to use mild Italian sausage) for the bacon.

- 1-Cup Mayonnaise
- 8 oz. shredded jalapeno jack cheese
