Grill the Jalapenos

Jalapeno Popper Dip

  • 8 ounces Neufchatel cheese Note 1
  • 1 cup low-fat sour cream Note 2
  • 4 ounces diced green chilies
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • salt, to taste
  • 12 ounces Colby Jack cheese, shredded and divided
  • 1 cup Farmer's Pantry Crackers, crushed Note 3


Grill the Jalapenos

  • Preheat grill pan.
  • Rub jalapenos with olive oil and season with garlic salt and pepper.
  • Reduce heat on the grill pan to medium. Place the jalapenos on the grill to sear on all sides, around 5 minutes.
  • Remove jalapenos from the grill. Let cool for a few minutes. Remove seeds and dice jalapeno. Set aside.

Jalapeno Popper Dip

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Have an oven-safe small baking dish ready.
  • In a medium bowl, add Neufchatel cheese, sour cream, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, and salt. Use a hand mixer to combine the ingredients.
  • Add in the green chilies, diced jalapenos, and 6 ounces of the shredded Colby Jack cheese.
  • Place the jalapeno cheese mixture into a 9-inch round oven-safe baking dish.
  • Top mixture with remaining Colby Jack cheese and crushed Farmer's Pantry crackers.
  • Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes.
  • Serve with tortilla chips, crackers, or veggies.


Note 1: Regular cream cheese or low-fat cheese works well too!
Note 2: Again regular sour cream can be used. I prefer using low-fat ingredients when I can.
Note 3: I use Farmer's Pantry Honey Butter Cornbread Crisps for the topping.
