Gluten-Free Jalapeno Popper Dip

What’s your go-to pub food? Mine is a two way tie between jalapeño poppers and curly fries. Since I have no idea how to make curly fries, I decided to make jalapeño poppers instead. Unfortunately they actually are a ton of work to make individual poppers so for us lazy folks there is such thing as jalapeño popper dip!!

Creamy and crunchy with a that jalapeño “bite!” I would make this again next week…and the next week…and the next week…
