Ingredients

  • ½ pound bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 2 packages cream cheese (8 ounces each) softened
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup mayo
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 7 jalapenos seeded and chopped
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar divided
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella
  • ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • ¼ cup sliced green onions (about 2-3 sliced)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add cream cheese, sour cream, mayo, and garlic powder. Stir until smooth.
  • Fold in crumbled bacon (reserving 1 tablespoon for garnish), half the shredded cheddar, mozzarella, Parmesan, jalapenos (reserve 1 tablespoon for garnish), and green onions.
  • Transfer to an oven-safe baking dish or skillet (about 8-10 inches).
  • Sprinkle remaining cheddar, bacon, and jalapenos on top.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes until heated through, melted, and bubbly.

Notes

One serving is about 1/3 cup of dip and do not include chips or crackers for dipping.
  • This dip is naturally gluten free.
  • This dip is keto and low carb. To make it even lower carb, you can omit the sour cream and use all mayo.
  • Pat or wipe the grease off of your cooked bacon before you crumble it to keep the dip from getting too greasy.
  • To make your dip extra hot, add more jalapenos and leave some of the seeds in.
  • To keep your dip mild, diligently remove all of the seeds before chopping your jalapenos.
  • Handle fresh jalapenos carefully, preferably with disposable gloves and washing your hands when done. The oils from hot peppers can get into your skin and burn. (It's painful! I found out the hard way!)
  • Can you used jarred jalapenos? Yes, although it may have a more mild pepper flavor. Start with about 1/3 cup chopped and add more to taste.
  • Make Ahead Instructions: To make the day before, prepare dip according to directions without baking. Cover and place in the refrigerator until ready to use. Then uncover and bake, adding an extra 5 minutes to cook time to account for the cold dish.
  • Storage: Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Reheat in the microwave.
  • Freezer Directions: Prepare dip according to instructions then cover and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight before baking.
