Wow, it’s been a minute since I’ve posted! With work getting busier by the minute, I haven’t had as much time to document all of my recipes, but I am trying to get back on track. I made this jalapeño popper dip over Christmas break and it was to.die.for. It was an absolute hit with friends and family and you can bet I will be making it again soon!
