Jalapeño Popper Dip

Happy New Year! How did you celebrate? We gathered with our friends and had an East Coast New Year's Eve = 9 pm is the new midnight when you have kids. : )

Marcy graciously hosted at her house. 
Loved this fun tablescape, which the kids quickly raided and made lots of celebratory noises.

I made this quick and easy dip: Recipe from Simply Gourmet

I did make one substitution. Instead of using jalapeños, I decided to use pickled jalapeños. I thought maybe the tartness would cut through the bacon and variety of cheeses. And you don't really have to worry about the heat from the pepper seeds either.

6-8 slices of bacon, diced and cooked crispy
2 8-oz packages of cream cheese, soft
1 cup of mayonnaise (I used 3/4 cup)
4-6 jalapeno's, chopped and deseeded.  
1 cup of cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/4 cup diced green onion
1 cup of crushed crackers ( I used Ritz)
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 stick of butter, meltedTwo 8oz. blocks of cream cheese

You literally just mix everything together and sprinkle on the cracker topping and bake at 350 for about 25 minutes until bubbly.

Serve with crackers of tortilla chips.
