IS CHEESY BACON JALAPENO DIP SPICY?
The great thing about this recipe is that you control how spicy it is. I added 3 large jalapenos from my local farmers market to this Cheesy Bacon Jalapeno Dip and the heat was perfect for me and my family. If you like things a bit spicier, feel free to add more and in turn, if you don’t want you jalapeno dip to be too over the top, maybe only add in two jalapenos instead. I also remove the seeds and ribs from my jalapenos before dicing up the peppers so that turns the heat down quite a bit, as well.
WHAT ABOUT THE BACON?
How is this Cheesy Bacon Jalapeno Dip hitting the oven in just 5 minutes if you are adding bacon? I cheat, there … I said it! I am a huge fan of the pre-cooked bacon piece pouches you find in the salad topping section of your grocery store. It’s real bacon, it’s just already cooked and chopped for you. If you are not a fan of these, feel free to cook six bacon slices either on your stove top or in the oven and then add that chopped bacon to this recipe. Both options are delicious, I just usually choose the pre-cooked bacon option because I have a husband and four dogs that can identify the smell of cooked bacon and then I have to make enough to feed the whole family 🙂
HOW DO YOU MAKE CHEESY BACON JALAPENO DIP?
Easy! To make this Cheesy Bacon Jalapeno Dip, preheat your oven to 350 degrees and spray a baking pan with non-stick spray. Reserve 3/4 cup of shredded cheese and a small bit of bacon and diced jalapeno and set aside. Add all of your remaining ingredients to a large bowl and using a hand mixer, mix to combine.
Spoon your dip into your baking pan, sprinkle with the reserved shredded cheese and toppings and cook for 25 minutes.
