This Super Cheesy JJlapeno popper dip is loaded with fresh diced jalapenos and a crispy, crunchy Parmesan topping. The best part is that this dip can easily be converted to Keto friendly and falls into a low carb diet plan, so you can truly enjoy this dip without the guilt! If you like heat and a little bit of a spicy, hearty and savory dip, this is definitely the best oven baked dip for you!
1/4cupgrated Parmesan cheese(shredded is fine as well)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a small casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray. Set the casserole dish aside.
Add softened cream cheese, cooked and cut up bacon, shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheese, and mix ingredients together well.
In the same bowl, stir in diced jalapeno peppers and heavy whipping cream and mix all ingredients till blended.
Spoon dip into prepared (sprayed with nonstick spray) casserole baking dish.
In a separate small bowl, add melted butter, crushed crackers and shredded Parmesan cheese to create a crumbly topping. Topping types can vary and its fine to use cheese crackers or shredded Parmesan cheese if that is all you have on hand as well. It's a very forgiving variation.
Mix topping ingredients together well and sprinkle Parmesan crumble on top of dip in casserole dish.
Bake jalapeno popper dip for 20-25 minutes or until hot, creamy, and bubbly.
Serve this appetizer dip with crackers, bread, or vegetable sticks.
In this dip recipe, I used buttery round crackers, but you can use Cheez-its (as seen in the video) as well.
If making this as more of a Keto Friendly or low carb change, leave off bread crumbs and instead opt for freshly shaved Parmesan cheese.
This dip also has a good kick, and you can expect some heat. That being said, if you want heat, add some Tabasco or Sriracha!
Crackers, Chips, or torn bread.
Raw vegetables like cut peppers, celery, and cucumber slices.
