Slow Cooker Bacon Jalapeno Popper Dip

In the last 5 years I’ve begun to like spicy and hot foods more. I can remember growing up having a neighbor that always had some new food to try. His food was always crazy hot and would burn your mouth.  He would catch us outside and would offer us a cracker. His daughter would always shake her head and the first couple of times I was asked, I made the mistake of trying the food item. Needless to say it only took a few times for me to realize that was not a good thing to do.  Now that I am becoming older I’ve realized I’m more and more like that neighbor because I love the spicy foods.

This dip combines the flavors of jalapenos, bacon and caramelized onions.  So easy.  Now If you prefer something a little warmer, add in more chopped jalapenos.

Frugal Cooking Tips:

  • Can your own jalapenos for later use.One plant in the garden can produce enough jalapenos for 4 pints or more of home canned pickled jalapenos.
  • Cream cheese stores nicely in the refrigerator. When cream cheese is $.99 a block, I purchase at least 4 and keep them in the refrigerator. Cream cheese is great in sauces, dips and even just spread on a little toast.
