Recipe by Molly Kooiman Barber
"For Super Bowl® one year, I really wanted to make jalapeno poppers but wasn't in the mood for all the work so I put this dip together. It combines all of the flavors of a jalapeno popper and has become a request at every football party we throw, as well as one of my husband's favorite dips."

1 (8 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
grated Parmesan cheese
Italian-style bread crumbs
jalapeno peppers, seeded and diced
red pepper flakes
This is the best dip I have ever had. Everyone loved it! I will be making this again. I did use fat free sour cream and fat free cream cheese. Tried to make it as healthy as possible!
I make Jalapeno poppers all the time, this does not taste anything close to poppers...I might try it again and modify by adding some bacon. It was a total flop as is.
I think that this would be better if you melted the cheeses sourcream, pepper flakes & jalapeno in the saucepan together then put them into a casserole dish. Top with the breadcrumbs and bake or broil to crisp it up.
This was really good and easy to make. Thanks for posting the recipe
I made this again on Superbowl and adjusted a few things that I think made it a lot yummier. I added about a 1/2 cup of diced up Velveeta and also a small amount of water to make it creamier. It also doesn't hurt to add some garlic powder, maybe a teaspoon. I chopped up more jalepenos as well. It's still a great recipe, but seriously adding the Velveeta makes it absolutely perfect!
This was very tasty-- Jalapeno poppers are one of my favorite appetizers, but are far too much work! I already had a jar of sliced jalapenos in the fridge, so to be even lazier, I just used those and diced them up. The recipe is great as-is, but since I always dip my poppers in ranch or blue cheese dressing, it is also good with a little of either mixed in. Also, this serving size was plenty for my husband and me, but for a crowd, I would suggest doubling or even tripling the recipe.
Thank you for posting this recipe. I made it for a Super Bowl party last night & everyone loved it!
I preferred this saucepan cooked dip to many of the baked versions I've tried. I added a good bit of plain fat free yogurt to thin it to a more dippable consistency and added a few more jalapenos because we like spicy.
