Cooking Time: 20 minutes

total time: 30 minutes

works 8

  • 3 jalapeno peppers, 2 leftovers whole, 1 halved
  • 1 Garlic cloves, unpeeled
  • cup Condensed Whole Milk Greek Yogurt*
  • 1 small spoon onion powder
  • 1 small spoon sea ​​salt, for more spraying
  • heaping ¼ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • and a half cup Bread crumbs
  • spoon extra virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • and a half cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • chopped chives, for garnish

  • Preheat oven broiler and line a baking sheet with foil. Place 2 whole jalapenos and 1 jalapeno halves on a baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil and sprinkle salt. Wrap garlic cloves in a piece of foil and place on a baking sheet with a drizzle of olive oil. Simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, or until jalapeños are soft and blistering.

  • Remove from oven and set aside to cool. When jalapeños are cool to the touch, use your hands (wearing gloves, if desired) to peel and discard loose skin. Cut the peppers in half and remove the seeds and membranes. Finely chop the chillies. Remove the garlic from its paper and mash it into a paste using the back of a chef’s knife.

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together yogurt, onion powder, salt, smoked paprika, garlic, and roasted jalapeños.

  • In a small bowl, toss panko with olive oil. Transfer yogurt mixture to a small skillet or baking dish, top with cheese, and sprinkle with panko. Fry 1 to 5 minutes or until topping is golden brown. The time will depend on your broiler.

  • Take out from the oven. Thinly slice remaining jalapeño in half and sprinkle slices over dip. Top with chives and serve with tortilla chips.
