Cheesy Jalapeno Popper Dip

Share this Recipe!

It’s Super Bowl time! I wish I could get more excited about it, but I can’t.

I just really can’t. I’m really just not a sports girl. In fact, we’re really not much of a sports family.

And to shock you even further, I can honestly tell you that I have no idea who is playing football today. As in .. which teams. I know, I know *gasp*

But it’s just not my thing.

What is my thing though, is the wonderful, scrumptious foods that are served at any good football or tailgating party. That’s my favorite part, so I’m usually in the kitchen cooking all day and my teens come in and help me while hubby enjoys the game.

That’s how we spend our day during football season, but more importantly the Super Bowl because even when my husband’s team isn’t playing, he’s still watching and routing for someone. I have to keep him fed and happy and this dip is just the answer.

Not to mention that I am not sure I have a single friend (okay so I have a few… special shout out to Jen, in particular) that doesn’t just love football. In fact, one of my closest friends Isabel, is absolutely obsessed. I have to tell you, sometimes talking to Isabel is infectious when she is talking about her boys and football or super bowl and football. She gets so excited and animated. It only made sense that it was one of our themes for Sunday Supper.


When I found out that our #SundaySupper theme was actually going to be Super Bowl Snacks, I was all over it. I told you, I love the food aspect. I knew what I wanted to make from the get go. This Jalapeno Popper Dip gets rave reviews each time I make it and it’s one of those dips we enjoy having  just because. My teenagers devour it quickly and I will tell you, they were trying to stick their fingers in it while we were photographing it. They aren’t heathens, they just really like it.

You will too.

I see variations of this all over the Internet all the time – they all look fantatic. This is the way we make it and I got this out of one of those little spiral bound local cookbooks when I was just a little older than my teens now.
