Wanted to share the recipe I made for Super Bowl that we really liked. It seems the big food wave right now is anything buffalo wing, so I wanted to try something different. Of course we had to BBQ to get ready for the game and usually I make jalapeno poppers stuffed with cream cheese and wrapped with bacon. The problem is they take forever to prep so I wanted something quick and easy to make and I think I found it! We really really liked this dip and you can adjust the heat, by adding more or less jalapenos and even add in fresh jalapenos if you want. Trust me you won’t be disappointed! I used a deeper dish, but I would recommend using a shallow one so it heats through and you get some of the crunchy topping with each bite.

You want the top to get browned and the dip to be heated through and bubble gently on the edges. Do not over heat this dish or the mayonnaise with separate and you will have a grease puddle in your dip. Serve with Buttery crackers or a sliced French baguette. Serves 8-10.
