Jalapeño Dip

Morning, kiddos! I have painting to do so I’ll be keeping things short and sweet today.

And spicy.

There are dips that require roasting and sautéing, slicing and dicing… and then there’s this dip. This is the kind of dip where you toss everything into a food processor and walk away. The kind of dip that can be made in under 5 minutes.

This dip, my toddler made.

Seriously!

Granted it was far too spicy for my 2 year old, so you miiiiiiight want to save this one for the adults in the room. But regardless, this dip is as easy to make as it is to stuff in your face!

  • halved sweet mini peppers
  • crispy tortilla chips

Instructions

  2. It's that easy!

Notes

For a milder dip, feel free to remove the veins and seeds from each jalapeno, you can bend both back into the dip to adjust the heat level. There's no wrong way to make this dip! If you accidentally go too heavy on the heat, cool the dip down by adding extra yogurt or cream cheese. Easy peasy!Craving MORE spice? You're dangerous, Maverick! Feel free to add an extra jalapeño or even season the dip with red pepper flakes. I'll be there to fan your face and give you a cold glass of milk.

You may have noticed that there are four jalapeños in this recipe. That makes four, count em, four ways to annihilate your palate and have you fanning your face while still eagerly reachig for another bite. And you will reach for another, and another, and another… because the cool, creamy Greek yogurt and cream cheese combo will come to your rescue, soothing the jalapeño’s bite just enough to keep you coming back for more.

Is this not the perfect party or game day appetizer!? Your friends won’t be able to get enough!

I love a good dip, especially the spicy ones.

Dani @ Dani California Cooks

I’m always on the hunt for more fun entertaining foods! This is so easy and l bet there’s a ton of flavor

Debbie Spivey

Pinned!! 🙂

Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche

Ooh I bet this is perfect with tortilla chips – maybe even drizzled over nachos?! Yuuum 🙂

    Jenn

    Thanks love! GREEN nachos! Yes!

Mary Frances

Oh wow! My mouth is watering looking at this dip. Yummy!!

Bring on the heat! The jalapenos in my garden are about to explode so I’m pinning this and waiting for them to come in – can’t wait! YUM! (And P.S. Good for you for tackling the painting yourself. For the sake of my sanity and our marriage, we hired painters when we moved earlier this year 😉 )

    I think we may throw in the towel and do the same. Even the ceilings in this house are painted a yellowy beige that clashes with pretty much my entire life. Our mattress is still on the floor yet somehow painting over the yellow is higher priority 😉 haha! Hope you adore the dip! It’s a staple here!

I made this last night for a barbecue and it was a huge hit! I deseeded two of the jalapeños, which gave it a good level of heat for a crowd that doesn’t eat as much spicy food as me 🙂
I also added a bit of garlic and onion powder (1/4 tsp each) to boost the flavor. Thanks for the recipe!

    Jenn

    Sah-weeeet! Thanks Anna!

Christina

Do you think this would be good with pickled jalapenos? 🙂

    Jenn

    Hey Christina! I love both fresh and pickled jalapeños like crazy, but using pickled in this one would change the flavor profile of the dip so much that I’m having a hard time imagining the taste. It for sure will lose that fresh pepper taste and I’m not sure how the pickled peppers pair with the cilantro mainly. It could easily be overwhelming if you added too much but could still be quite good if you go the ratio perfect.. I’m just not sure! When all I have handy is pickled jalaps I usually make the dip from this recipe: https://peasandcrayons.com/2015/06/baked-jalapeno-popper-phyllo-cups.html which is similar, but baked. Let me know if you end up trying either! <3

      Christina

      Thank you for answering, I think I’ll definitely try fresh first. Love your blog, so many amazing recipes!

        Jenn

        Happy to help! Super excited you found me and I cannot wait to hear about everything you try! <3 Hope you're having a great weekend Christina!

          Christina

          Tried using fresh jalapenos today, and it was really good! Other than the fact that I put to much garlic in it, I personally prefer the flavor of pickled jalapenos. That’s why I felt like the jalapeno flavor was missing, but it was still an amazing dip! Sooo good with peppers and tortilla chips. Thank you for a great recipe, I will definitely try out more of them! <3

          Jenn

          Hey Christina! You’d probably love dill pickle dip too, eh? 😉 I bet if you blended pickled jalapeños along with the fresh (versus all of one or the other) it might be perfect for you! Thanks so so much for the super sweet comments and feedback Christina! <3 Keep me posted on what else you make, I'd love to keep in touch! xoxo

Laverne

For those who are worried about too spicy, start with one chopped jalapeno, then go from there. We managed three…. So good – thanks!!

    Jenn

    Great tip Laverne! So happy you enjoyed it! 🙂
