Prep time: 15 mins, Cook time: 15 mins, Total time: 30 mins, Serves: 8


Cool Dip


  1. Preheat the oven to 425?F.
  2. Cut the jalapeños in half lengthwise and use a paring knife to remove the seeds and ribs.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the cheese, garlic powder, and bread crumbs.
  4. Lay the jalapeño halves cut side up on a rimmed baking sheet. Spread 1/2 tablespoon of the cream cheese in each one and top with the cheesy bread crumb mixture.
  5. Bake the poppers for 15 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and the bread crumbs are golden brown.
  6. For the dip, blend all the ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth.
  7. Serve the poppers with the dip on the side.
  8. NOTE: You can make the Cool Dip the day before. To store the dip, pour in a plastic container and cover with plastic wrap. Push the plastic wrap over the surface of the dip and push out all the air bubbles. Cover with the lid and store for up to 48 hours in the fridge. I like to use any leftovers as a yummy veggie dip.
