Jalapeno Popper Dip

We collected 12 pins, each of our family members choosing four each. We will prepare one each month. They are all rolled up on little slips of paper in a bowl on our mantel.

The January Choice, Bacon Pierogi Bake, was one of my selections.

This Jalapeno Popper Dip choice comes from Mr. Wonderful. For March, we have selected Buttermilk Fried Chicken, one of T’s picks. Come back soon and see how that turns out!
