Jalapeno Popper Dip - S

    I love Jalapeno Poppers. Those really good Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers ones are on plan. BUT..
I had a bad experience de-seeding jalapenos once. Correction, I did not have the bad experience, my aunt and small cousins did.

    My (very pregnant) aunt was visiting our house with her small children and I set about to make these. Her twin 7 year old girls wanted to help. I let them. This was in my less brilliant days (I was 18).One of the girls actually squirted jalapeno juice into her eye. The other one rubbed her eye with the juice on her hands. They screamed bloody murder for about an hour straight. No kidding. It wasn't pretty. I still feel very, very bad about this. At least we laugh about it now (very softly and nervously. kidding)    

Therefore, to this day I try not to de-seed jalapenos too often. I will brave it occasionally, but only when there's no little kids with in 50 miles of our house. 

Now, I just make a dip and use the sliced jalapenos from a jar. Much safer, although it could still be dangerous to small children.

Jalapeno Popper Dip

4 oz of Cream Cheese
2 Tbsp of Sour Cream (or Greek Yogurt)
1/2 - 1 Tbsp of Jalapenos, chopped (from jar)
6 strips Cooked Bacon, or to taste
Small Splash of Liquid Aminos
Sprinkle of Nutritional Yeast
Sprinkle of Garlic Powder


  1. This sounds yummy but what are you doing with the bacon? Chopping it up and stirring in? When one of my daughters was younger she did the same thing with some seriously hot peppers my dad was growing in his backyard. She touched them and then rubbed her eyes. I remember her eyes being all red-it was pretty bad.

  2. Oops! Yes, Chop the bacon and throw it in. Sorry!
    As for the Jalapenos - they are seriously dangerous, I tell ya ;)
    Thanks for stopping by!
