Jalapeno Popper Dip

I love Jalapeno Poppers but I don't like filling the poppers and wrapping the bacon around them...messy, messy, messy. So I told myself why not throw everything together and make it into a dip and that is exactly what I did. I took some to my sisters (Terri) Texans football party. I served it with celery sticks and some of the girls told me it was addicting. When I told them it was low carb they liked it even better. You can eat it with chips but that defeats the whole low carb thing. You can use low fat cream cheese and turkey bacon but I didn't have any on hand or I would have used those.
Jalapeno Popper Dip
1 stick of soft cream cheese (8 oz)
1 cup of low fat cheddar cheese
1/4 cup of Ranch light salad dressing
6 slices of cooked bacon (crumbled)
3 jalapeno peppers
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
Optional - pinch of salt

Microwave the cream cheese and cheddar cheese on high for 1 minute. Stir in salad dressing, garlic powder and bacon crumbs. De-seed and De-vein 
the jalapenos and place them in a cute little
chopper like the one in the photo and
mince those babies. Throw them in and give it a good stir. You know I think the girl was right, they are addicting!
