HOW TO MAKE CHEESY BACON RANCH DIP

 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.
