Best Ever Bacon Jalapeno Popper Dip

Best Ever Bacon Jalapeno Popper Dip is a simple recipe for an unforgettable appetizer. We are so excited to be partnering with our friends at Crunchmaster® crackers to bring you a show stopping appetizer perfect for holiday entertaining and an amazing addition to any game day!

It is rich, creamy and fully loaded with 3 types of cheese, copious amounts of bacon and a craveable crunch that will have you coming back for more. Oh and it happens to be gluten-free. That is a win at any party.

I tried Crunchmaster crackers for the first time at a friends party a few years ago and I was immediately hooked. I mean I ate a lot. You know like when you keep going back to the bowl and your friend says "do you want to take the bowl with you?" Nope, me neither.

It wasn't until I saw them at Costco that I even realized they were gluten-free.

It seems more and more people are sensitive to gluten these days and even though my family is not we are sure to have some naturally gluten-free food at our get-togethers. By that I mean, I don't have to buy a bunch of special ingredients. The recipes just happen to be gluten-free and I have to say this is one of my favorites. Traditionally this recipe is made with a panko bread crumb topping that gives the dip a great crunch.

We used a cheese and bacon topping and that irresistible crunch? Oh we didn't forget that! Crunchmaster crackers delivers that crunchy goodness in a better-for-you bite!  Making this one unforgettable appetizer. It really is the best ever bacon jalapeno popper dip!

I will let you all know that you can pick up Crunchmaster crackers at your local retailer. I get mine at Safeway, Fry's, Walmart or Costco. The company’s products are distributed nationwide, so be sure to check out their product locator to see where you can pick some up.


  • If you have fresh jalapenos on hand they are amazing in this dip. Save a sprinkle for the top.
  • If you can not find New Mexico chili powder, you can use California or ancho chili powder.
