All the flavors of jalapeno poppers in an easy to whip up dip. I love that this recipe cuts the laborious efforts of making poppers to almost nil. The Crunchy topping sets the way to smooth hot popper filling. Get the tortilla chips ready.

1 (8 ounce) package of cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup mayonaisse
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup cheddar cheese,shredded
1/2 cup romano cheese, grated
1 tablespoon ketchup

4 -6 fresh jalapeno peppers, chopped with seeds removed
