A healthier, mayonnaise-free version of Jalapeño Popper Dip
Need an appetizer to take to a party?
Jalapeño Popper Dip should be your answer.
It's cheesy, creamy, spicy, and tastes oh so good.
I based my recipe off of multiple jalapeño popper dips I found. I took out all of the mayo and replaced it with cottage cheese which also adds protein to this dip.
I served it with homemade whole-wheat pita chips. It would also be great with celery or bell pepper strips.
