I am obsessed with jalapeno poppers! There is just something that is completely irresistible about the combination of spicy jalapenos and hot meted cheese, and things only get better when you throw in some chicken and bacon! Jalapeno popper dip is a great way to enjoy all of the flavours of jalapeno poppers in dip form but what about for dinner? How about a jalapeno popper chicken casserole? This casserole is basically just chicken and jalapenos mixed into a cream cheese and topped with cheddar cheese and baked until bubbling and golden brown! Sour cream, mayo, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder and parmesan cheese all add flavour to the cream cheese base making it so delicious! You really can’t go wrong adding a sprinkling of bacon to finish things off! Who says you can’t have jalapeno poppers for dinner? This chicken jalapeno popper casserole is the perfect way to!
