We love Jalapeno Poppers around here!  I’ll pretty much each jalapenos any which way they’re served…  grilled, in a jalapeno popper dip or even as an egg roll!

I actually make Jalapeno popper dip frequently and it’s one recipe everyone always asks for.  I figured that same delicious dip would be amazing in an easy to hold two-bite appetizer.  Let me tell you, I was right.. these are delicious!  I recently brought these to a party and they were a smashing success…  and of course I was asked for the recipe (so be sure to print a few extras)!
