Recipe Notes

Jalapeno Popper Dip freezes well. When you have a few extra minutes, mix all ingredients (except the topping & garnishes) together and scrape the dip into a sprayed freezer-friendly container. Just don't add the topping until ready to bake. When ready to use, preheat the oven, add the topping, cover loosely with foil and bake an extra 10 minutes or until golden and bubbly.
