 Not only do I have an intense adoration for Mexican cuisine, but also for all things spicy. Yes, really really spicy. I like it hot. There aren’t many things I haven’t tried hot sauce on. Hot pockets? Check. Turkey sandwiches? Check. Potato chips? Double check! What can I say, even as a kid I was thinking outside the box.

 My three older brothers loved to torture and torment me. And I just wanted them to let me tag along so I’d do just about anything they told me to. Once they tied a bed sheet to my ankles and lowered me head first down the laundry shoot. I don’t remember anything good from that particular experience. But I do remember the day they made me eat a whole raw jalapeño. . . by itself.

 That’s right, a whole jalapeño, plain. Seeds and all. For anyone who doesn’t know, most of the heat from a spicy pepper comes from the seeds. I’ve never felt such a fire in my mouth before or since that day. And I am here to tell you that milk does not help. Plus, I’m lactose intolerant and we didn’t know that back then. No medicine + lactose intolerance + two tall glasses of 2% milk = a mean stomach ache. On top of a burning tongue. That was fun.

But after the fire died down and my taste buds grew back, I was left with a longing. A longing for jalapeños. Yep, that’s when my jalapeño love affair really began. My mother kept a Costco container of pickled jalapeños in the fridge in our basement, and many a time was I caught down there with nothing but a fork, fishing for jalapeños.

Recipe type: Side Dish/Dip
Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • 8 ounces fat free cream cheese, softened
  • 8 ounces 0% fat plain greek yogurt, or 8 ounces fat free sour cream
  • ⅓ cup mayo (for an even healthier version, use light mayo or mayo made with extra virgin olive oil)
  • 1-2 7 ounce cans sliced jalapeños, drained
  • 2 tablespoons reduced fat grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons seasoned bread crumbs
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. In a large bowl mix together cream cheese, greek yogurt or sour cream, and mayo. Stir in jalapeños. Transfer mixture to a small-medium casserole dish (the one I used in the pictures above is 8 inches). Sprinkle bread crumbs and parmesan cheese on top. Garnish with additional jalapeños if desired.
  3. Bake 20 minutes until top begins to brown. Serve hot with crackers or chips. Enjoy!
Notes
*use 1 can of jalapeños for a milder taste, 2 if you want it spicier and want more jalapeños
**if your jalapeños come in cans with pickled carrots or other vegetables, discard everything but the jalapeños before adding jalapeños to dip mixture

I just found you via Pinterest and I’m so glad that I did! I am loving browsing your recipe and this dip looks fantastic!

    Oh Mercedes I’m so glad you did find me! I just made that dip a couple of days ago and it’s already GONE! We loved it, I hope you do too!

I just found this via chef-in-training on pinterest. Thinking of taking it to work for our potluck. Might see how it will translate to using a crockpot.

    Wow a crockpot version would be genius! Definitely let me know how it turns out if you try it!! 🙂

      So I made it for today’s party. To use the crockpot, I placed all ingredients except for breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese in and set the setting to low. Mixed well and allowed everything to blend and the cream cheese to melt. Heated until warmed through. Topped with the parmesan cheese and bread crumbs. Served warm with chips.

Can you use fresh jalapenos? Or are the canned ones better? Can’t wait to make this!!!!!!!

    Hi Alina! I’ve used both! If you opt for fresh jalapeños, I recommend removing the seeds or the dip may be way too hot but you can definitely use either! 🙂

Do you have to use the mayo?
