Cheez-It Crusted Jalapeño Popper Dip recipe tastes exactly like a jalapeño popper with a crunchy, cheesy Cheez-It topping. It's an easy, incredibly tasty and highly addictive appetizer!
Recipe type: appetizer
Serves: 4
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • ½ cup parmigiano reggiano (parmesan), grated
  • 1 (4 ounce) can sliced jalapenos (pickled), drained and chopped
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, chopped (optional - for more heat)
  • ½ cup Sharp White Cheddar Cheez-It Grooves, crushed (measured after crushing)
  1. Crush the Cheez-Its using a food processor.*
  2. Mix the cream cheese, mayonnaise, cheddar cheese, parmigiano reggiano and jalapenos in a bowl and pour into a baking dish (Size depends on if doubling recipe or not. Mine fit in a 24 oz. casserole dish when not doubled).
  3. Sprinkle the crushed Cheez-Its over the dip.
  4. Bake in a preheated 350F oven until the sides are bubbling and the Cheez-It topping has turned golden brown on top, about 20 minutes.
  5. *You can smash them in a ziploc bag with a meat tenderizer or rolling pin if you prefer, but I recommend 15-20 seconds in the food processor.
