“Rich and creamy jalapeno popper dip made easy with the help of your multi-functional pressure cooker. Don’t forget the butter crackers for dipping!”


  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 4 jalapeno peppers, seeded and diced
  • 1 cup shredded cooked chicken
  • 1 green onion, chopped

  • 1/2 cup real bacon bits
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream


Combine cream cheese, jalapeno peppers, chicken, green onion, bacon bits, and water in a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot(R)). Close and lock the lid. Select Manual; set timer for 5 minutes. Allow 10 minutes for pressure to build.

Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer’s instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Add Cheddar cheese and sour cream. Stir until cheese is melted.

Transfer dip to a serving dish and garnish with additional jalapenos, bacon bits, and Cheddar cheese if desired.


Cook’s Note:

  • For a spicier dip, leave in some of the seeds from the jalapenos.
