When chopping jalapeños, you can control the heat based on whether you keep or toss the seeds. More seeds = more spice! Just be sure to wash your hands well to remove those spicy oils, and whatever you do, keep those digits away from your eyes.

    Delicious, my husband and I loved this! So easy also, and I can’t imagine it being that bad for you. Thank you!

  2. I also omitted the jalapenos – unfortunately, the heat doesn’t fare well in my house and I was hesitant. Can anyone tell me how spicy the dip is when they are added? I would like to give it a shot, and maybe cut back on the amount if needed.

      The jalapeno hardly addS any heat at all, AS LONG AS THE SEEDS ARE REMOVED. I leave maybe a quarter of the seeds in and it’s still only mild-medium spicy.

  3. This dip is amazing. The second time I made it, I added spinach, green onions and mozza cheese (instead of Parmesan). I enjoy recipes that are relatively versatile so that I am able to substitute ingredients based on what I have in my kitchen, or to tailor ingredients to meet guests’ preferences. It went well with pita bread and tortilla chips – I will need to try french bread next. It is wonderful to be able to make it in advance too. It’s super quick and easy to prepare. Goodbye store bought dips!! Thank you for the recipe.
