Over the holidays, my sister-in-law introduced me to Jalapeño Popper Dip. She made it for our family Christmas gathering, and it was a hit. As in, we licked the platter clean. So I came right home and Googled it and discovered many variations on the Jalapeño Popper Dip.

How could I be so in the dark about the newest rage in party-friendly culinary delights!? How come no one told me?? I feel so out of it!

Because I couldn’t begin to pick one from the massive amount of Google hits that ensued when I typed Jalapeño Popper Dip into the search bar, I emailed my SIL to get her version, and this is the one she sent . . . WHICH is easier and has fewer ingredients than most that I saw online.

I chopped the jalapeños, and she did the rest.

They definitely enjoy eating it.

Because I’m gluten free, my SIL was kind enough to leave off the breadcrumbs when she made it for us. I had some Glutino Gluten-Free Breadcrumbs in the pantry, so I used them.
