One of my husband’s staff members brought this jalapeno dip to a party recently and everyone loved it. This would be a perfect dip to serve on New Year’s Eve or anytime that you serve chips and dip or other finger type food.
I knew my family would enjoy this, so I got the recipe for it and gave it a try last week. We all loved it. This is one of those recipes that is so easy and so good. I will be making this again soon.
Jalapeno Dip is a great appetizer for game night, holidays, and more.
- 1/2- 1 cup chopped canned jalapeno, this is the kind that comes in a jar or can and is usually on the Mexican food aisle ( 1/2 cup for mild and 1 cup for spicy )
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 2- 8 ounce packages of cream cheese- softened ( This will have a lighter fluffy texture if you use whipped cream cheese)
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1- 4 ounce can green chilies
- 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
- tortillas chips for serving
- Mix the first five ingredients together and place a small casserole dish.
- Sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese.
- Bake at 350 for 25 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted.
- Serve with tortilla chips.

Thanks so much! We are doing Mexican for New Year’s Eve so this will work perfectly as a side dish. This recipe sounds like it might remind me of jalepeno poppers when I eat it??? Yum!
I make something similar to this. I use fresh chopped jalapenos and I add shredded cheese to the cream cheese/mayo/pepper mixture and I top with shredded cheese and cooked crumbled bacon. It makes it more like the stuffed jalapeno poppers my family likes, and it is much easier to make.
@Denise, I was thinking some cheese would be good added to it also. I was thinking cheddar or jack would be good, but I had not thought of the bacon. Bacon is a great idea and would had lots of flavor.
@Lynn, I have used cheddar, mexican blend, and colby jack, and it has turned out great with all of those. 🙂
YUM!!! May have to try this very soon!
I wonder how this would work with chipotle peppers? I might try replacing half of the green chilies with finely chopped chipotle peppers and some sauce. I’m really liking the smoky flavor of them right now and they are showing up in just about everything I cook!
@Laura, I think it would give it a great smoked flavor.
