Cook Time 15minutes
½poundbaconcooked and crumbled
2packages cream cheese(8 ounces each) softened
7jalapenosseeded and chopped
½cupfreshly grated Parmesan
¼cupsliced green onions(about 2-3 sliced)
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.
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.
