This easy jalapeño popper dip recipe is a take on one of our all time favorite party foods, stuffed jalapeños! Perfect for holiday parties, super bowl parties, or whenever you want a simple, delicious appetizer. 


  • 10 fresh jalapeños
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 4 ounces goat cheese
  • 1 cup crispy bacon, chopped and divided (88 grams)
  • Crackers, bread slices, or chips



Bacon. This is just as good with all of the bacon mixed in instead of saving some for the top.

Make ahead. This dip can be made up to 3 days in advance. Don't bake the dip if making ahead of time. Instead, mix the dip and store in an airtight container in the fridge. Dip can also be frozen for up to 3 months. Bake before serving.

This can also be heated and kept warm in a crock pot. Instead of baking in the oven, place mixed ingredients into a small crock pot and heat until warm. Keep on lowest setting to keep warm. 

Favorite riffs. Substitute shredded cheddar cheese or feta cheese for the goat cheese. We recommend keeping the cream cheese as the base of this recipe. Replace bacon with crispy prosciutto or cooked sausage. Leave the bacon out for a vegetarian option.
