Hey guys, I’m here with the follow up recipe for you to use up that Jalapeno Popper Dip if you didn’t finish it off. I know sometimes when I bring a dish to a potluck and there is so much food. A lot of times many of the same type dish shows up and your dish doesn’t get gone like you thought it would. Or if you’re family doesn’t dive into the dip because it’s just not their thing. However, if you’re like me you still want to make the dip because you just love it. That was me earlier in the football season. I was craving this Jalapeno Popper Dip and thought about halving the recipe, but decided against it. I knew this dip would work great in a couple other meals. This is what I call Repurposed Leftovers.

Jalapeno Poppers - Repurposed Leftovers

These Jalapeno Poppers are so easy because the hard(er) work is mixing the filling, which you’ve already made when you made the dip, right!

Jalapeno Poppers - Repurposed Leftovers



Servings: Lots
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:
1/2 lb – 1 lb of jalapenos
1 lb bacon – cut into half (3 inch pieces)
leftover Jalapeno Popper Dip
Jalapeno Poppers - Repurposed Leftovers

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 400°.
2. Cut the top off each pepper, split down the middle, and remove seeds and innards (unless you want them extra spicy). My peppers were huge. I like them to be bite size so I cut them into smaller bite size pieces.
There are 2 types of jalapeno poppers – with and without bacon
3. Take a spoon full of the dip and place on top of the pepper.
4. If you’re making poppers without bacon take some of the breading topping and place on top and press down so it sticks. If you’re making with bacon, take a piece of the bacon and wrap it around the pepper.

5. For the bacon wrapped poppers, I place on a broiler pan or on a cookie sheet with baking rack on top to allow grease to drain as it cooks. For the non-bacon poppers, I place straight on a cookie sheet.
6. Cook for 15-25 minutes until bacon is done or topping is brown and bubbly for the non-bacon variety.

These are great by themselves or with ranch to dip in.
