Baked Jalapeno Popper Dip

11701127_10153491418891663_5005135348175332829_n Seven weeks down and five to go before it’s back to school for Miss. Maisie.  We can’t believe how quickly summer is passing and honestly none of us are looking forward to it being over and returning to the school year schedule.  One of the things that we’re really enjoying this summer is our time relaxing out on the dock, sipping our cocktails and snacking on appetizers, such an enjoyable way to spend summer evenings.  So of course when it came time to search out a recipe on our assigned Secret Recipe Club blog Colie’s Kitchen, we were on the lookout for appetizers. 
11262153_10153491419216663_8653814049444973426_n There were many recipes on Nicole’s blog, both appetizer and non-appetizer which caught our attention and were in the running for this month’s recipe.  I mean how delicious do Southwest BBQ chicken, Southern fried corn, Avocado mozzarella salad, or bunuelos sound?  I mean seriously, difficult choices.  But then there were two recipes which really sparked the debate on which to make and it came down to either Nicole’s cold Jalapeno popper dip or her hot Jalapeno popper dip.  I mean it’s Jalapeno popper dip two ways!  We adore, ADORE, the taste of jalapeno poppers as evidenced by two of our other favorite recipes, Jalapeno Popper Soup and our Totally Outrageous Jalapeno Popper Grilled Cheese Sandwich, yes we do love our jalapeno poppers!  In the end it was the hot dip which won the coin toss and it was made for the ladies of book club.  Now you’d think that some hot spicy dip would be too much for the ladies who read but let me tell you, they were scraping that serving dish clean, licking their lips and asking for the recipe.  Needless to say the dip was a huge hit and super simple to make and thus, has been added to the make-again-and-often recipe list. 
11061943_10153491418801663_4947690996192741316_n We did of course change Nicole’s recipe a bit.  Her recipe calls for a mix of cheddar and parmesan cheese and we thought that we had both in the house but when we were preparing the dish we found that we were out of cheddar and only had about a 1/3 cup of parmesan so we went with what we had and that was mozzarella.  We also added crumbled bacon and that was a very last minute decision.  Seriously, we had put the dish in the oven and two minutes in, pulled it out and added on some bacon.  Not sure what possessed us to do that, but it sure was delicious.  Check out Nicole’s recipe or use ours, either way, if you’re a jalapeno popper lover, you won’t be disappointed. 

Preheat oven to 375F.  In a bowl mix together the cream cheese, mayonnaise, mozzarella cheese and the diced up jalapenos.  Lightly grease a baking dish (I used a shallow 1.5 qt. oven safe dish) and spread the jalapeno cheese mix evenly.  Top with the shredded Parmesan cheese and bacon.  Bake for 20-30 minutes until bubbling and golden brown on top.  Serve hot with crackers or tortilla chips.
