Jalapeno Popper Dip

An easy and creamy jalapeño popper dip topped with Parmesan cheese and panko bread crumbs–perfect for watching the big game.

Ingredients:

Bottom Layer:
1 head of cauliflower
2 Tbsp rice milk
2 Tbsp butter
1/4 cup shredded colby cheese
1/4 cup raw jalapenos, chopped into tiny pieces
1/4 tsp garlic
1/4 tsp salt

Cream Cheese Layer:
6 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup shredded colby cheese
1/4 cup salsa

Topping:
3/4 cup shredded colby jack cheese
1/4 cup raw jalapenos, chopped into tiny pieces

Directions :

First, make the puree. Break the cauliflower into pieces. Add the cauliflower, 2 tablespoons butter, and 2 tablespoons rice milk in a microwave safe dish. Microwave for 10 minutes (uncovered). Stir cauliflower around so it’s coated with the butter/milk mixture. (We used rice milk, but the original recipe calls for heavy cream.) Microwave for another 6 minutes.

Remove from microwave, and place in your blender. I use my DynaBlend, but you could also use a food processor. Add garlic, cheese, and jalapenos. Puree until smooth, and season with salt (and pepper, if you’d like).

Start your layers. Spray the bottom of the casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray. Our casserole dish is 8×8 and it’s perfect! Spread the puree evenly across the bottom of the dish.

Next, put the cream cheese in a bowl and microwave it for 45 seconds. Add the salsa and shredded cheese. Mix together. Spread on top of cauliflower layer.

Top the cream cheese layer with the chopped jalapenos and colby jack cheese. Bake at 375*F for 20 minutes, then broil for up to 5. Keep a close eye on it! You want it to be a bit brown, but a broiler will take your dish from a bit brown to oh shit I burnt dinner in less than a minute.
