Recipe: Jalapeno Popper Dip

One of my most favorite things at a fast food restaurant, Jack in the Box, is the stuffed jalepenos you can order, with a side of buttermilk ranch dip. They are burning hot, oozing with cheese from the center.
I was on Pinterest awhile back and came across this Jalapeno Popper Dip recipe. I was so anxious to try this dip and see how well it compared. It turned out really good and satified my craving for stuffed jalapenos. I found it much better to serve this straight out of the oven and heat it up as necessary to keep it hot. It is served well with tortilla chips.
