We LOVED this! I had no issues w/ it being too salty or greasy. I did 1/2 the recipe and use pickled diced jalapeno peppers in place of the fresh b/c that's what I had on hand. Loved the buttery cracker topping! All of the flavors went great together...a definite keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

Too salty, too greasy. I doubled the jalapeno's & cut mayo in half . The cheddar made a layer of grease that the crackers soggy Truly a disappointment.

This has quickly become a favorite among my family and friends at gatherings. I double the amount of jalapenos,added garlic to the cheese mix, and chives to the topping for some added color. I usually use the Italian blend cheese instead of just motz or whatever I have on hand. Last time i added a little muenster cheese mmmmm.

I looked at the reviews concerning this recipe and decided I would follow the original except for some small modifications. I used 10 medium size jalepenos with seeds, 2 more ounces cream cheese, 1 1/4 c cheddar cheese, and 3/4 c mozzerala. We had no issues with the dip being greasy or even close to it. Perfect dip for a large number of people. If you are entertaining less than six, I would recommend cutting the recipe in half. Will make this dip over and over, we loved it!!

I have made these a couple of time's now and have changed a couple of things for flavor I use half mayo and half sourcream with the cream cheese mixture, green onions and minced garlic some roasted red peppers just helps the color and flavor then topping is french's fried onion's sprinkled on top man oh man this one is put together for all our parties and is always gone I have even tripled the recipe hoping for left overs and it's always gone...... so have to make extra and put it in the freezer for just hubby and me...lols....

I've been making this filling for years. It's just a basic cheeseball recipe, adding bacon, jalapenos and a crumb topping. I don't understand why mayonnaise is always added as an ingredient. It's unnecessary. Just ensure cream cheese is very soft. This doesn't yield a party size amount, so if entertaining, double. More than 5 jalapenos are needed for a true jalapeno flavor. If you drain the bacon properly, won't be greasier. I mean it is a cheese dish. Some grease won't be avoided. I also season with a little garlic pepper.

THIS RECIPE IS OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!!!!!!!! I had a ton of jalapenos from the garden and needed to use them quick. I also had some leftover crab meat and threw that in. My mouth is watering just remembering how amazing it is! Definately will be making this again!

Yummy and not too greasy as others have stated. I drained the bacon on paper towels for a few minutes before adding to the other ingredients. The whole family loved this recipe.
