Man Food: Jalapeno Popper Dip

As prepared by Girl Who Ate Everything,

I guess I should've known my days of dainty little salads for dinner were over when my husband cooked his very first meal for me. 

We were just beginning to date when he made spaghetti with meat sauce that had a whopping two pounds of meat in it!

Growing up as the youngest of ten kids, we had spaghetti every Sunday for dinner. Although there may have been some meat in the watery spaghetti sauce when my older siblings dished up their plate, by the time I dug into the sauce there sure wasn't any. My husband's spaghetti, thick and full of savory meat, was completely on the other side of the spectrum. Thus my introduction to "Man Food" and a cuisine future consisting of Buffalo wings, burgers, Philly cheese steaks, and anything that made my mouth burn and my eyes water.

I knew when I made this Jalapeno Popper Dip that it fit in the "Man Food" category and would definitely be husband friendly. It's an easy, creamy jalapeno dip with just enough heat to please the hubby but mild enough to be enjoyed by myself. I loved this dip because the heat can be controlled. Not that wives are control hungry or anything. But marriage is all about compromise, right? That's why over the years our meat-to-sauce ratio has decreased -- and unfortunately our metabolisms as well.

You can make this Jalapeno Popper Dip with just a little heat or you can double the jalapenos for the spice-lovin' men in your life. It's a no fuss dip that doesn't take you away from watching the game.
