Here is my recipe for these delish poppers..i think people sometimes expect you to make the same thing over and over again,,me i try to make different dips for it so that u can ease in people to a different taste or flavor.;)
Ingredients

1 pack PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened


1 pack KRAFT Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Creamy Dip

Ingredients:

3 cups ranch dressing
1/4 cup roasted green chilies
1/4 cup sliced jalapeños, fresh
3 tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves

I just halve nice jalapeno's, scrape out the seeds, put a cream cheese mixture in (herb and garlic, regular, whatever..) and wrap it in bacon. They are great on the BBQ!!

If you want a something different here is a popper dip
Jalapeno Popper Dip

Ingredients
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup mayonnaise
1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chilies, drained
4 ounces canned diced jalapeno peppers, drained
1/2 cup shredded Mexican style cheese
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup Panko bread crumbs
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
Method
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray an oven safe serving dish with non-stick cooking spray.
2. Using an electric mixer, blend the cream cheese and mayonnaise until smooth.
3. Stir in green chilies, jalapeno peppers, and Mexican and mozzarella cheeses. Spoon this mixture into the prepared baking dish.
4. Mix together the Panko and parmesan cheese and sprinkle it over the cream cheese mixture.
5. Spray the Panko and parmesan with a quick spray of non-stick cooking spray.
6. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the mixture is hot and the topping is lightly browned.
Notes: If you are in a hurry, skip the Panko/Parmesan topping and simply microwave the cream cheese mixture until hot and bubbly.
Serve this dip with, French bread, fresh vegetables, tortilla chips, crackers…pretty much anything that pairs well with cheese!

Has anyone tried these with a sweeter version like banana peppers? DH doesn't care much for the heat of jalapenos so I don't get these.

yes they were sorta bland - but i like the heat - i did use a hot pepper jack cheese in them and they came out ok-- but if Dh doesn't like the heat he might them with the bananna peppers.

I like a sweet and sour sauce with mine. I have made my own but I usually buy the Lachoy brand - the red one.

Sure Jalapeno's are classic for this item, BUTTTTTTTT.....

if you want to spice things up a few notches make them out of Habaneros or if you are really lucky out of some Ghost Chili peppers.
