CROCKPOT JALAPENO DIP FAQ
Can you make jalapeno popper dip ahead of time?
Absolutely! You can make it ahead of time. Then all you have to do is plug it in and keep your Crock Pot on the warm setting.
What are the best dippers for jalapeno cream cheese dip?
I love any kind of chip! They work great for this dip but so do a ton of other things. Here are some ideas:
- Tortilla chips
- Corn chips
- Pita chips
- Ritz Crackers
- Pretzel sticks
- Veggie sticks
- Chicken wings
What I love about dips is that you can really use anything you love as a dipper! This recipe is pretty flexible! If you like the jalapeno popper flavor, then you’ll like it no matter what you dip with!
Can I add other protein options to this cheese dip?
Of course. You can add in shredded chicken (and then make sandwiches for a different option), ground beef or taco meat, or even sausage!
Another thing you can do is add corn to the recipe. Just get a can of corn and drain it before adding it with the rest of the ingredients.
Do I have to use mozzarella cheese?
You don’t! I just like the way it melts in this recipe. But you can use cheddar, Colby, or even pepper jack! A Mexican cheese blend would be tasty too!
Can I use pickled jalapeno peppers instead of fresh?
You can use a jar or can of jalapenos but I highly recommend the flavor you get with fresh peppers!
If you do use pickled jalapeno peppers, you need about 3 tablespoons for this recipe. One fresh jalapeno equals about 1 tablespoon of pickled jalapenos.
Can I use my Crock Pot Little Dipper slow cooker for this recipe?
No! It won’t be big enough! Things will get very messy very quickly!
I usually make it in our 6-Quart Crockpot and it works fine. The smallest I would go would be a 3-Quart Crockpot.
