Jalapeno Popper Dip that is a must-make recipe perfect for tailgating, game day, or just because!

Jalapeno Popper Dip | Add a Pinch

Simple, delicious dips are all the rage at my house when we are entertaining and this Jalapeno Popper Dip is one of our very favorites. It is creamy and so full of flavor with the combination of bacon, cheeses, and nuggets of jalapeno that no one believes how incredibly easy it is to make.

People always seem to think I’ve been working away in the kitchen a whole lot longer than I have been when they taste this dip, but they certainly aren’t shy about doing away with it in record time.


It is the perfect dip to serve on game day, while tailgating, or when friends drop by for a visit. You can have it together in no time and they’ll be raving about it for years!

I promise.

Here’s my Jalapeno Popper Dip recipe.

  1. This looks and sounds GREAT!!! Is it ok if I use pickled jalapeno slices??? Once again you’ve shared a fantastic recipe. Can’t wait to make this!!! Thanks!!

    1. I haven’t used pickled jalapeno slices, but it sure does sound good! Let me know how you like it, will ya? I always love your recipe suggestions!

  2. Hi, thanks for sharing this recipe! I currently live in Singapore (org from Texas)….so, I am curious about a couple ingredients.
    Jalapeños- I would LOVE to use fresh ones, but they are impossible to find here, could I use canned diced jalapeños?

    Mexican cheese- what cheeses would this include? We are pretty limited in selection here.

    Thanks so much!

    1. Shannon,

      About the jalapenos – I’ve not tried canned diced jalapenos before, but I would think they should work fine. If you try these, will you let me know how they work, I’m sure other folks may want to give them a try, too!

      For the cheese – I just went and double checked on the package of my cheese to make sure I’m telling you the exact cheeses included. In the package that I use, it is Sharp Cheddar, Colby, and Monteray Jack cheeses.

      Thanks so much! Can’t wait to hear how you like it!

  3. I am eating this now. I really like it! I hate it when people change the recipe & then comment, but that is exactly what I am doing now. I was afraid of 10 jalapenos, so I mixed in a small can of mild green chiles instead. Then I diced only 1/2 of a fresh jalapeno and added to only one side LOL. I shouldn’t have been so worried! I like it, but it needs more kick. I won’t add 10 jalapenos next time, but I will add more than one!

    1. LOL! The 10 jalapenos do not make it super, duper spicy at all for the size of the dip – but definitely adjust the amount to your preference. I’m so glad you like it!!!

  4. I made this tonight for a Super Bowl party. It was AMAZING. I used “real bacon pieces” instead of cooking actual bacon (3 – 3 oz. packages – just heated them in the microwave for a minute and a half or so first). I was a little worried about using 10 jalapenos, but it was not super spicy at all, just plain delicious. There are lots of similar recipes out there, this one blows them all out of the water. Thanks so much Robyn!!

    1. That’s a great idea for using the bacon pieces, Marie. I bet the precooked bacon would do well, too. I think I’m constantly cooking bacon for one thing or another so I always have it on hand. I appreciate your compliment on the dip! We definitely love it, too!

  6. I need to try this. I love dips and I especially love jalapeno peppers and any peppers to give my food a lil kick! 😉

  7. There are many sizes of Jalapeno peppers , big ones, little ones, fat ones, & skinny ones, and the recipe calls for 10. Could you tell me about the right size pepper to use so I don’t make the dip too spicy. Thank you

    1. Hi Nancy,
      Great question. Sorry I didn’t specify. I generally find small or medium ones in the grocery store in my area and pick them fairly quickly when I grow them. So, I would recommend using small to medium ones for the recipe. I hope you enjoy it!

  8. Absolutely amazing!!! In our family we usually make jalapeño cream cheese poppers wrapped in bacon. This dip exceeded my expectations and was a HUGE hit!!!
