Well….I’m known for my jalapeno poppers on the grill…so I thought I need a quick way to make these. I decided to make it as a dip instead, so I could focus on the rest of the meat and veggies on the grill. So, I made this for a party last month and it went over well. I used pineapple perserves on it then, but I did not have any today, so orange marmalade it was…..


8 oz. cream cheese
2 jalapenos(chopped)
8 or 9 slices of bacon(cut up in pieces)
1 cup of sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup of real mayo
garlic powder and pepper to taste
1 small jar of orange marmalade or whatever your palate desires


In skillet—fry up the cut up bacon and jalapeno til crisp—drain on paper towel.

In dish–melt the cream cheese in microwave for about a minute til soft.

Add the cheddar cheese, garlic powder, pepper, and half of the bacon mixture.

Spread orange marmalade on top of that.

Sprinkle remaining bacon-jalapeno mixture on top.

Poof~~~~~you have a cool dip that has a little sweet and hot and salty taste…Go ahead, I know you want to try a bite……..

I am into finding new kind of dips, and this is one that will be a keeper, along next to my buffalo chicken dip for sure…. Until next time~~~~~Eat and be Merry!!!!!!
