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 :)

  • 6 jalapeños, divided

  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs

  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.
Recipe Notes

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.
