jalapeno cheddar dip

Is there anything better than a super cheesy dip? I mean, super cheesy anything is great in my book, but I LOVE a good dip. This Jalapeno Cheddar Dip hits the dang spot too. It’s cheesy, creamy, and a hint spicy. Perfect with crackers, chips, veggies, you name it. Each serving is just 4 WW SP too, so go ahead and have seconds.

Making Jalapeno Cheddar Dip

This dip is super simple – just mix, bake, and enjoy. There are two main components to it – the dip itself and the crunchy topping. If you’re looking to save points, you can skip the topping or reduce the amount of it!

For the dip:

  • Pickled jalapenos, diced finely. They give a great tangy flavor and a bit of heat. You can add more/less depending on your tolerance for spice.
  • Nonfat Greek yogurt. I use Fage 0%.
  • Low fat cream cheese, which will add texture and flavor.
  • Laughing Cow creamy garlic cheese wedges, which add flavor and texture as well. If you don’t have these, substitute an additional 2 tbsp of low fat cream cheese.
  • Garlic powder, salt, pepper to season.
  • Parmesan and cheddar cheese, because this dip needs alllll the cheeses.

You’ll mix up that concoction and put it into a lined small pan or mini skillet. Set aside while you make your topping.

For the topping, you’ll need:

  • Panko bread crumbs, which give an awesome crunch.
  • Smart Balance, which is a WW friendly butter replacement (vegetable oil spread), melted.
  • Dried parsley, salt, pepper to season.
  • Parmesan cheese, because the more cheese the merrier.

Spread topping over your cheese mixture to create an even layer. Spray the top with a bit of cooking spray, pop it all in the oven, and bake at 350 for ~12 minutes. Then, broil on 400 F for 3-5 minutes to crisp up and brown the topping.
