I have made this spread a number of times and my family/friends love it. I've made variations by adding a little fresh jalapeños, used combo of Monterey Jack and cheddar (that's what I had). Since I love bacon wrapped jalapeños, I added crumbed bacon this time---It was an even bigger hit!

I attended a social distancing party at my friends private lake and each family brought their own snacks and drinks. I decided to make this dip for my crew and the four of us gobbled it up. I did add four slices of crumbled bacon. Also, I used the full 4 oz can of diced jalapeños instead of measuring out 1/4 cup. It was really good served with Frito scoops and orange bell pepper. I only used 1/2 of the breadcrumb/Parmesan cheese topping. I plan to make this again for my dad’s day BBQ but I’ll double it because I’ll be sharing with my parents and my siblings and their families.

I love jalapeno poppers, so when I saw this tempting recipe I gave it a try and it is just like eating the jalapeno poppers. Will make it again.

Everyone thought that this tasted just like a popper! I loved that I was able to showcase my canned garden jalapeno peppers in this recipe. Easy to make with ingredients that I had on hand.

I recently made this recipe and it was delicious with the pepper strips., no one touched the crackers. I will make it a bit more spicy the next time though, but all in all easy to fix and great to eat.

1/4 c.=239 calories.....wow....it was very good but way too fattening. I will definitely make it again but will try low cal ingredients. Really need all those ingredients so don't want to leave out any....

Made this today for a family gathering. Huge hit. Everyone LOVED it and it's simple to put together. I added a bit more cheese and diced jalapenos and it was perfect. Great party appetizer ~ will definitely make again! Taste of Home Volunteer Field Editor
