I hope everyone had a great weekend and was able to spend some quality time with their dads! 

My husband and I had our dads over for a barbecue full of manly, “dadly” food-hamburgers, brats, potato salad and this dip!

I actually think I enjoyed this dip more than anyone else!  I love jalapeno poppers, but they seem like a lot of work to make.  Plus, I could do without the deep-fried aspect of them.

This dip incorporates all the great flavor of jalapeno poppers without all the extra work that goes into making them.
