How to make jalapeno popper dip

The dip takes just 5 ingredients mixed together- cream cheese, Greek yogurt, shredded white cheddar cheese, feta cheese, and canned jalapeños.

MIX. After you mix all 5 ingredients together you spread it evenly into a small oven-safe dish.

TOPPING. To make the crispy topping you’ll toss some Ritz Crackers into a baggie and crush them all up. Then mix it with Parmesan Cheese (yeah, that’s that 4th kind of cheese you’ll be using) and melted butter.

BAKE. Sprinkle the topping over the dip and pop it in the oven for 20 minutes until it’s golden, bubbly, and smells amazing.

Ingredient Notes:

  • Jalapeños: you could use fresh jalapeño’s but you’d need to take the time to chop them and sauté them, so canned jalapeños are your best friend.
  • Greek Yogurt vs. Sour Cream: A lot of other jalapeño popper recipes use sour cream or mayonnaise, but plain non-fat Greek yogurt tastes just like sour cream but without all the calories and fat and it has loads of protein. If you don’t care about the nutrition and only have sour cream on hand, you can definitely use that instead.
  • Cheese: I opted to use white cheddar cheese for the color (plus it’s delicious!) but you can definitely use sharp cheddar if that’s what you already have on hand.
