Cheesy? Check! Creamy? Check. Smoky? Check. This Super Bowl-worthy dip has it all. And the jalapeños add a nice kick, offset by the creaminess of the Mexican cheese, cheddar cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, and mayonnaise. This homemade dip is sure to be the star of the show. This dip is also really easy to make. Start by frying some bacon in a cast-iron skillet or oven-safe pan. Then chop the slices into bits. Next, make your dip by combining cream cheese, Mexican cheese, cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, jalapeño slices, and seasoning. Be sure to use gloves, so you don't accidentally get pepper in your eye when you rub your eyes.

You'll then want to place the cheese mixture in your cast-iron skillet and top with some cheese, bacon, and jalapeño peppers. Then bake in the oven until golden. Serve with baguette slices or our Keto Tortilla Chips.

Which jalapenos are hotter red or green?

Red jalapeños are usually hotter. That's because they tend to have a higher concentration of capsaicin, which gives jalapeños their spicy kick.  

Do jalapenos need to be refrigerated?

Jalapeños don't need to be refrigerated. However, if you want them to last longer and retain their taste, it's best to refrigerate them. Jalapeños that are kept in the fridge can last up to one week. However, they'll last just two to three days if left unrefrigerated.
