From your short description, you might be looking at a stuck exhaust valve or broken valve spring.
What happens is the valve that opens above the cylinder to allow the exhaust gasses to escape may be shut, so when the intake vale opens to allow the gas in - and the spark plug ignites it - the explosion is forced back up the intake system (instead of out the exhaust), making the popping noise you're hearing.
Whatever the case, it could be a few related things - all not good. Looks like a trip to shop is needed.

Engine is running rough at idle; making slight "popping" sound; can see rpm's on the tach jump slightly


have you checked the EGR (exhaist gas recirculation) valve? sometimes carbon will chip off and make them stick partially open causing extremely rough idle or wont idle at all without help from throttle
