Jalapeno Popper Dip

  So as bad as I wanted fall weather to come and stay, I am SO thankful that its held off a bit.  The last part of September, our tomato plants FINALLY, after doing awful all summer, started producing.  YAY!  We also have an abundance of jalapenos and red peppers.

  I can’t let all those good peppers go to waste, so I was on the look out for recipes using either.  For the Red Peppers, we’ll do Steak Fajitas or Southwest Cream Cheese Stuffed Red Peppers.  Here is what I found for the jalapenos:

Jalapeno Popper Dip

I am in LOOOVE with this dip! Tastes JUST like Jalapeno Poppers! I don’t like a lot of heat, so we seeded the jalapenos, it was perfect, even the kids could eat it.
