  • “This was quick & easy to make, and delicious! I made it to take on an out of town trip with several other couples, and it was a hit.Very good with crackers, as well as with tortilla chips. “

  • “Absolutely delicious.Creamy, spicy, what more could you ask of a spread?”

  • “I used 4 fresh jalepenos (large) and some bacon and it was awesome!! Thanks :)”

  • “This recipe is definitely making it’s rounds in my family.So far 3 of us have adopted it as our own…lolJust be sure to label it, because myAunt was shocked when she took the first bite…thinking it was coleslaw.She won’t make that mistake again.
    IF there are any leftovers, it’s also great in a grilled cheese….try it, you’ll like it.”

  • “Very very good!Our grocery store sells a jalapeno dip that we love, but it’s rather pricey.In search of a more economical alternative, I searched Zaar for a copycat recipe and hit a home run with this recipe.I used 3 cups cheddar and 1 cup American cheese in an effort to duplicate the dip I buy locally.I needed 1 1/2 cups mayo to achieve the right consistency.Perfect!Just what I was looking for.Thank you so much — this will save us some $$$ now that we can make it ourselves.”

  • “I added only 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise. The spread was very good that way, but I then baked it at 350 for about 30 minutes and absolutely loved it.Thanks, Bergy.”
