We love poppers, but I don’t love making them! They are a lot of work and are gone in a flash! So when my friend posted this recipe I also knew (like she did) it would be a keeper!
I made a few changes but it turned out great! We like them pretty hot and spicy! Serve it hot from the oven with tortilla chips! I also think it would be good spread on a toasted bagel for lunch…
1 8oz package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup mayo (I would use less, I don’t like mayo)
1 can diced chilies (for a more spicy dip, I would use canned diced hot chilies or jalapenos)
3 fresh jalapenos, finely chopped (leave in seeds for more spice)
1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup finely shredded cheddar or Mexican blend cheese
Preheat oven to 400.
Mix cream cheese, sour cream and mayo until smooth.
Stir in chilies and jalapenos.
Spread in a glass pie plate. (At this point you can bake it right away or let it sit covered overnight in fridge.)
Just before baking, mix the bread crumbs and cheese in a small bowl and sprinkle on top of dip.
Bake for 15 minutes or until heated through. After it’s heated through, you can place it under the broiler for a browner top if you want.
