Cheesy Baked Jalapeno Popper ~ Savory Simple

I had a fabulous weekend at Mixed.  I got to meet many online friends in person (special shout outs to Chung-Ah from Damn Delicious and Carrie from Bakeaholic Mama. I miss you already!) Thanks to organizers Paula from Bell’alimento and Susan from She’s Becoming DoughMessTic for such a labor of love.  Thanks to all of the speakers for the informative workshops.  And finally, thanks to the sponsors! It was wonderful spending one-on-one time with KitchenAid, Dreamfields, and everyone else.  We had the time of our lives :)

Cheesy Baked Jalapeno Popper Dip
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 8 servings
  • 6 jalapeños, divided
  • 8 ounces (about 1 cup) mascarpone cheese
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) cheddar cheese, shredded
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ cup (2 ounces) parmesan cheese, grated
  • ½ cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon unsaled butter, melted
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Slice one jalapeño into thin rounds for garnish; set aside. Seed and finely dice remaining jalapenos.
  3. In large bowl, combine mascarpone, cream cheese, cheddar, garlic powder and diced jalapenos. Spread mixture on bottom of 1-quart baking dish.
  4. In separate bowl, combine Parmesan, panko breadcrumbs and melted butter; mix to combine. Sprinkle breadcrumbs evenly over the dip. Top with reserved jalapeno slices.
  5. Bake 30 minutes, or until dip is bubbly. Allow to cool at least 5 minutes before serving. Serve with tortilla chips or crackers.
Jalapenos are not as spicy once the inner ribs and seeds are removed. To retain some heat, leave the seeds in 2-3 jalapenos you are dicing.
