This Shrimp Jalapeno Popper Dip loaded with bacon and cheese is sure to be the center of attention at your Super Bowl party this year!
Ok! The Super Bowl is vastly approaching and I realized that I hadn’t yet posted an appetizer that was worthy of said event. What’s the Bowl without calorie laden appetizers all around, right?!?! CONFESSION ALERT: I don’t know about you but I go to Super Bowl parties for the good food, great fellowship and the hilarious commercials. I’m not really there for “THE GAME”. I have a feeling there are others out there just like me, if you’ll actually admit it. 🙂 Don’t worry, I won’t tell a soul. 😉
Not only am I a bit behind with this, I thought I’d jump on this jalapeno popper dip bandwagon. I know, I know…like the world really needs another jalapeno popper dip? I make jalapeno poppers all the time for parties and gatherings and they’re always a big hit with the crowd but the idea of stuffing and wrapping individual peppers doesn’t appeal to me at the moment. With the busyness of life, I’m all about good and tasty food in a flash. What about you?
This appetizer combines all of the classic flavors of a jalapeno popper into a spicy, creamy, yet crunchy dip perfect for your Super Bowl party. Because hubby is such a seafood fanatic, I thought I’d add shrimp to the party just for him! This was a great idea because he loved it so much so that he ate it as his dinner meal. So now you know it’s gotta be good. I actually caught him table dancing while enjoying it. Served with any item worthy of scooping with no “Labor Intensive Stuffing” required makes it a hit with me as well! So serve it up at your Super Bowl party or your community of faith this year (Acts 2:42-47) and watch it disappear in a flash!
