Jalapeno Popper Cheese and Corn Dip - Gluten Free

  •  I took this dip to my granddaughter's birthday party, knowing there would be several adults there too. Well, actually, I forgot I had told my daughter I would bring something and since I didn't have time to go to the grocery store, I scrounged around in my kitchen looking through ingredients for something simple to make. I knew I wanted to make an appetizer to go with the pizza she was ordering, but also did not want to bring anything sweet. I hurridly looked on Pinterest for something gluten free since I am wheat intolerant. Wheat acts like a sedative on me and that wouldn't be good for me while driving back home. I am also dairy intolerant, but as you can see, this dip is not dairy free. It's really difficult to find wheat AND dairy free recipes! 

Several of the adults at the party liked this dip and asked for the recipe, so here it is! I looked at several dips on Pinterest and used some ingredients from each one to come up with my own version. If you are intrested in seeing the other great recipes for Jalapeno Popper Dip (and other cheese dips), see the links below my recipe. Hope you like my version!

  • Ingredients
  • 3-4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (save 1 slice for the topping - see below). You could use Bacon Bits
  • 1- 8 oz package cream cheese , softened
  • 1/2 cup Hellman's Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 - 2/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarrela cheese (I used half Gouda cheese and half mozzarella, because I didn't have enough mozz)
  • 2 cups frozen sweet corn, thawed in the microwave about 2 minutes. (You can use fresh or canned corn)
  • 1/2 of a 4 oz. can Chopped Green Chilis (freeze other half for another dish or more dip later)
  • 1-2 Tablespoons jalapenos from a jar, diced, omiting seeds. I only used about 1 Tb, but next time I'll use more. 
  • Note: you could use fresh jalapeno peppers
  • 1 Tablespoon sweet, green pepper, chopped fine
  • 1 Tablespoon sweet yelloe or red pepper (I used yellow)
  • 1 Tablespoon sweet Vidalia onion or green onions, finely diced 

  • Topping
1/2  cup mozzarrella cheese (I used Gouda, but think mozz would be better)
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
1 slice bacon, cooked and crumbled
Few dashes of parsley
Serve with Crackers or Chips

Turn on oven to 350. 
Cook bacon. I usually cook my bacon in the oven, but this time I cooked it in the microwave between paper towels, since there wasn't much. 
While bacon is cooking, combine the next 12 ingredients in a bowl. Add crumbled bacon  to mixture and place in small casserole, oven safe dish. 
Spread Topping ingredients on top of cheese dip, and cook in 350 oven for 20-25 minutes.
Serve with crackers or chips!

  1. This sounds delicious! I will definitely try this since we live in Texas, and Mexican food is our favorite. I think a true Texan has Mexican food at least 3 times a week or more! 😊
