Cheesy Bacon Ranch Dip

JUST A FEW TIPS:

 CRISPY BACON: For the bacon, you want to cook it so that it’s crispy and not undercooked. And make sure that you pat any excess grease off the bacon before cutting into small pieces.

 GIVE THIS DIP AN EXTRA KICK: If you want to add more “kick” to this dip, you can add green onions or a dash of onion salt. I don’t like onions, so I never add them but if you like onions it will give this dip an extra kick.

 DON’T WANT TO USE BEER!?: No problem, you can substitute the beer for chicken broth.

    I made this as a warm dip.  I covered it with cheese and baked until melted!  It was delicious, thank you!

    This sounds amazing! I plan to make it this weekend, I was wondering if the consistency turns out more thick or runny? 

    • Jenn — October 29th, 2015 @ 1:36 pm

      It’s on the thicker side but not too thick that you can’t scoop a chip into it. Enjoy 🙂

    what can you substitute the beer for ? 

    • Jenn Kurkiewicz — September 22nd, 2014 @ 9:23 am

      I have never tried substituting anything else in this dip, but you could try chicken broth rather than beer. I hope you enjoy this dip as much as we do! 🙂
