Chicken Jalapeno Popper Dip. The long lost cousin of my very famous (among my family and friends – which counts) Buffalo Chicken Dip. With the Super Bowl coming up this Sunday, I wanted another really good, cheesy, flavorful dip that’s easy to make. There was a time when I used a grocery delivery service, and I asked for one poblano pepper. But my shopper decided to get me 2 POUNDS of jalapeños. And so, the jalapeño popper dip idea was born.
Making the Jalapeno Dip
Okay, truth is, I do not care that much about the Super Bowl, especially this year. But I do love having the best snack in the room. And if you are looking for a change, that snack will be this dip. Making it is very very simple. There are two steps to discuss: the jalapeños and the chicken.
Yes, we boil the chicken. Yes, it sounds weird and gross to me too. And I absolutely love doing it. (Not just for this dip, but for all of my meal prep!). The chicken shreds really easily, it’s moist, it is easy to add flavor to, and it takes less than 15 minutes!
Next, the jalapeños. Broiling them just to get one side charred brings some nice, roasty flavor to the jalapeños without taking away all of the crunch and spice. I found when I completely roasted and peeled them, the dip was really really mild. And I am a gigantic baby when it comes to spicy food, so that is saying a lot.
I am rambling. The day has been long. Honestly the MONTH has felt like an entire year! Anyone else? This dip barely needs explaining because it is so simple. And my mind is mush.
