Popper Dip
...6-8 slices of bacon, diced and cooked crispy
2 (8 oz) packages of cream cheese, soft
1 cup of mayonnaise
4-6 jalapeno's, chopped and deseeded. (The seeds will make it a lotta hot.)
1 cup of cheddar cheese
1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup diced green onion
1 cup of crushed crackers ( I used Ritz-type)
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 stick of butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350. Combine all of the ingredients into a medium bowl. Stir well.
Put into oven proof dish. The size of the dish depends on how thick the dip is.
The thicker the dip the longer it may need to warm up.
My dip is usually about an inch thick...10-12 inch dish works best.

Cheesy Pimento Cheese
2 1/2 cups jarred chopped red pimiento peppers, drained
5 cups shredded sharp Vermont cheddar cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup to 1/2 cup mayonnaise for desired consistency
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper
Flat bread, for serving
In a food processor, pulse the peppers a few times.
Move the peppers to a large bowl. Pulse cheddar and
Parmesan cheeses, mayonnaise, parsley, black and cayenne peppers a few times.
Add to pimentos and
Mix until fully incorporated.
Serve with
flat bread.
