Jalapeno Popper Dip

Jalapeno Popper Dip

This is the ultimate party dip for your friends, and for me, on a quiet night with a loaf of bread and a few glasses of chardonnay. This recipe comes from leftover jalapenos lying in my fridge from the spicy pepper relish recipe so some good use was in order. Using sour cream in this recipe helps in keeping it light and essential is the extra cheeses on top to ensure a hot bubbling dip to fall in love with!
