What do I need to make jalapeno cream cheese dip?
Here’s a quick-reference check list of the ingredients you’ll need to make this dip recipe:
- Cream cheese – regular is ideal, however, you can also substitute Neufchatel cream cheese as well.
- Mayonnaise – lends to the creamy texture of the dip. If you prefer to not use mayonnaise, you can double the amount of sour cream.
- Sour Cream – adds a great creamy texture to the dip.
- Fresh jalapeno peppers – use fresh peppers. They will add a great flavor and a bit of heat to each bite.
- 1 ( oz. can) Rotel, or diced tomatoes with chilies – adds some nice color and flavor to the dip.
- Shredded Mexican Cheese – you can purchase this pre-shredded at most grocery stores.
- Shredded Cheddar Cheese – if you prefer to use just one cheese, omit the cheddar and use all Mexican blend, as this will melt smoothly.
- Bacon – cooked crisply and broken into pieces.
- Chili powder – adds a nice complimentary flavor to the dip.
- Garlic Powder – also adds a welcome flavor.

How do I make crock pot jalapeno popper dip?
There is actually minimal prep in making this dip recipe. You will need to dice the fresh jalapeno peppers. Dicing the peppers into small pieces is ideal. Also, be sure to remove the stems and internal seeds. The seeds can be overly hot and spicy.
Another safety tip when chopping jalapenos; wear latex gloves and avoid touching your face, nose, mouth or eyes. The moisture from the peppers can be an extreme irritant to your face and can even cause harm. Please, be careful when handling hot peppers like these.
Let your slow cooker do the work:
Simply add the ingredients to the slow cooker, set it on low, and let it melt the ingredients together. While cooking, I recommend occasionally stirring the dip to help it mix and melt evenly.
I also recommend cutting the cream cheese into 1″ chunks to help it melt a little quicker.
