Football Season is on the horizon. I can see it just peeping over the sun! Do you have your tailgate recipes lined up? Well, add this one to the batch. Especially if you like jalapeno poppers. The football crowd will love this served with some Fritos scoops, or whatever you want to serve it with.
Bacon Jalapeno Cheddar Dip
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 Tbsp ranch seasoning mix
2-4 jalapeno peppers, seeded and diced (if you like more heat, leave the seeds in a couple of them)
1/2 cup crispy cooked and crumbled bacon (reserve a couple tablespoons to sprinkle on top)
2 cups sour cream
2 Tbsp onion, chopped
1 Tbsp parsley
pinch of salt and pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×9 inch baking dish with cooking spray. Stir all ingredients together in a bowl (except the reserved couple of tbsp. bacon) and spread evenly in the baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining bacon. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until bubbly and golden brown. Serve hot with chips or crackers of your choice.
