This past Saturday our tailgate group got together for the first time this football season to tailgate before the Auburn / Florida football game. (War Eagle!) I wanted to try a new recipe, and something with cheese. I turned to my friend pinterest to help me out.
I chose Jalapeno Popper dip and made a few tweeks of my own. Even though it required a whole cup of mayo (I'm not a fan of solo mayo) I decided to give it a try. Delicious once everything is mixed together you don't even taste the mayo. I left out the fresh jalapenos so it wasn't too hot, just right.
2 (8 ounce) package cream cheese at room temp
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup grated fiesta blend cheese
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 (7ish ounce) can sliced pickled jalapenos (the can I bought came with carrots & onions, I took those out and rechopped the peppers)
2 jalapeno peppers seeded & chopped (optional)
3 slices of bacon cooked & crumbled
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup parmesan
-Mix the cream cheese, mayonnaise, fiesta cheese, parmesan, bacon and jalapenos in a bowl. Pour into a baking dish.
-Mix the bread crumbs and parmesan and sprinkle over the dip.
- Bake at 375 until bubbly and golden. I left mine in for 15 minutes.

ps - several months ago I won the Pampered Chef baking dish I made the dip in from Kat. This was the first time using it and I love it! If you are looking for a great non stick stoneware dish I would recommend this one. Also if you are ever wondering what to buy at those Pampered Chef parties you must buy this spatula. Best thing in my kitchen, it cuts brownies so well.
