This Jalapeño Popper Dip is a delicious appetizer for devouring on football weekends! Ready in minutes, and just a few ingredients!
Hey, how was your football weekend? I care about your weekend generally too, but I’m wondering if you had a good football weekend or not? Ours was 50%. My college team won, but our professional team lost. I’m through and through more of a college football person though, so that was the more important game to me!
But you guys know, I’ll take any and all football. My nephew actually plays high school football, and we’ve gone to some games over the last few years. We make a point to attend the sporting events of all the nieces and nephews, whenever we can. They’re very active kids – between them, they’re involved in basketball, soccer, football, baseball, swimming… and I think I’m even forgetting a few activities.
We get together a lot this time of year to watch football. Whether we’re hanging out to tailgate before a game, or we’re watching games together at one of our houses, or we’re celebrating post-game victories, we always have an array of snacks and food. For this past weekends’ football games, I grabbed a Tony’s® Pizzeria Style Cheese Pizza and a Tony’s® Pizzeria Style Pepperoni Pizza at Walmart.
There’s currently an Ibotta offer for $1 off any 2 Tony’s Pizza varieties. Click the link here for the offer if you want to grab a few to stock up. They’re so handy to stash in the freezer. There’s also an opportunity to win a ton of prizes!
Quick side note to take a look at the freezer aisle at Walmart. Can you believe how barren it is? That’s totally not normal. Our grocery stores are still not quite stocked from Hurricane Irma, and I’m thinking there was a serious run on frozen pizza for an easy, post-storm dinner. That’s what we made as soon as we had power back! We had to toss everything in our fridge, and one of the first things we picked up was Tony’s Pizza so we had them on hand.
I love Tony’s Pizza, and this is one of our go-tos. Tony’s Pizza provides authentic pizzeria pizza, and they’ve been serving pizza for over 50 years, so they’ve got it down pat. They’ve had a lot of time and experience to perfect a high-quality, great-tasting, pizzeria-style pizza. The crust is crispy and crunchy on the edges, topped with sauce made from real tomatoes, and is smattered with a hefty layer of 100% real mozzarella cheese. It’s as delicious as it is authentic, and they offer a lot of toppings and varieties.
You can have a few pizzas ready in under 20 minutes, and you can share them with the family whether you’re fueling up for pre-game activities, you’re celebrating post-game, or everyone is altogether to watch the game. And while Tony’s Pizzas are an awesome meal choice for college and professional football game days, they’re also a great choice for family nights and get-togethers for high school football.
We love our town here, and we want to support the local teams too, so we attend games when we can, and we root for our nephew’s team! Tony’s Pizza is a part of our hometown celebrations. Tony’s Pizza started in a small town in Kansas, and they’ve not forgotten their roots. They take pride in their community too.
I LOVE banana peppers and jalapeños on pizza. They’re probably my favorite topping, besides pepperoni. When I was deciding what to serve along with the Tony’s Pizzas, I ran with the idea of peppers, and I created this Jalapeño Popper Dip to use as an appetizer alongside the pizza. Not only is it an awesome dip for crackers and chips, but a dollop on a slice of pizza is amazing. This Jalapeño Popper Dip is just like Jalapeño poppers, but in dip form, and it only requires a few ingredients, and about 10 minutes prep time.
Slices of pizza dunked into a spicy, cheesy Jalapeño Popper Dipping Sauce. It features a creamy base of melted cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and tangy sour cream, with sliced jalapeño and banana peppers, and a touch of Parmesan. It was perfect as an appetizer to accompany the pizza, and even more fun to use it as a pizza dip. Ready in minutes, and perfect for devouring on football weekends!
