Jalapeño Popper Dip

Jalapeño Popper Dip

This easy jalapeño popper dip is one of my go to party appetizers. Rich cream cheese, spicy diced jalapeños, savory bacon and sharp cheddar are topped with crispy Ritz crackers and baked until warm and gooey. Easily adjust the heat by adding or removing the amount of jalapeños. This is always a big hit at our parties!
