This delicious jalapeño, bacon, cheese dip is great for any Superbowl party! It is great with bread and chips! Or, if you don't need a dip, try spreading this on a long loaf of bread and baking it in the oven! Should make a pretty tasty spicy, bacon cheesy bread!
This dip is pretty thick, so plan for that! No dainty, fragile chips here!
PS: there is bread in the picture because this was supposed to be fondue, but it was not fondue-y enough.
Step 1: Ingredients
Time to gather everything! For this recipe, you really just want to get everything ready first, and then it is really quick to make it. Measure, cut, and bake first.
You also need something to eat with it. I had sourdough bread. I cut it into cubes, but it might have been nice with like bread sticks. Easier to dip in this dip.
- 2 tbs Flour
- 2 tbs Butter
- about 1 tsp Chili powder (optional)
- 1 lb of Cheese (I used 1/2 lb of Cheddar and 1/2 lb of Pepper Jack - cheeses are going to react differently to being melted, so I cannot guarantee results) cube or shred this
- 1 tbs jalapeños - use more for a spicier dip
- 6 Strips of Bacon, cooked and crumbled (use as many as you want)
Step 2: Starting with the Roux
To start you need to melt the butter on medium heat. As it melts, sprinkle in some chili powder. I didn't actually measure it, but you can. Once it is all melted, pour in your flour followed by your liquid/milk. Once it is all mixed you are ready to move on.
