    List of Ingredients

    ◦ 6 thick-cut bacon slices, chopped
    ◦ 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
    ◦ ⅓ cup mayonnaise
    ◦ ⅓ cup sour cream
    ◦ 2 tablespoons finely chopped pickled jalapeños
    ◦ 2 large fresh jalapeños, finely chopped (about ½ cup), divided
    ◦ ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro, divided
    ◦ 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    ◦ 1 teaspoon onion powder
    ◦ 1 teaspoon chili powder
    ◦ 6 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (about 1 ½ cups), divided
    ◦ 6 ounces pepper Jack cheese, shredded (about 1 ½ cups), divided
    ◦ Corn tortilla chips, for serving


    Preheat oven to 350° F. Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium. Add bacon; cook, stirring often, until crisp, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

    Stir together cream cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, pickled jalapeños, ⅓ cup of the fresh jalapeños, 3 tablespoons of the cilantro, garlic powder, onion powder, and chili powder in a large bowl. Fold in 1 cup of each of the cheeses and ⅓ cup of the bacon. Transfer to a 1 ½-quart baking dish greased with cooking spray or a medium cast-iron skillet. Sprinkle evenly with remaining cheeses, bacon, and fresh jalapeños.

    Bake in preheated oven until bubbly and golden, about 20 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cilantro; serve hot with tortilla chips.

    Makes 8 servings
