Cheesy Bacon Ranch Dip

The flavor and taste of this Cheesy Bacon Ranch Dip is certain to be your new dipping favorite!

I have two weaknesses in life…and they both just happen to be the central focus of this delicious recipe.

Anytime I can eat cheese and bacon, I’m 100% down for that to happen.

With the holiday party season upon us, I can’t think of an easier or more simple recipe to make and take to all those gatherings.

First off, everyone tends to love dipping-type dishes, right?

While this can be paired up with chips or pita bread, it also tastes equally as amazing with some cut up vegetables as well.

Carrots and celery are my go-to veggie dippers, but I’ve also tasted it with cucumber slices as well and it’s just as delicious.

Who says that you can’t pair up a bit of health with this hearty dip? 

And while this rocks during the holiday season, don’t forget that the Superbowl is literally right around the corner as well!

With this Cheesy Bacon Ranch Dip, you’re well ahead of the party planning game!

This dip pairs perfectly with touchdowns and team rivals as well! 

Make a batch to see what you think…and don’t worry, if you are eating it entirely yourself, it’s 100% acceptable to double dip!

ADDITIONAL 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.

KITCHEN TOOLS NEEDED

ELECTRIC MIXER: You will need to use an electric mixer to mix all the ingredients together and to make sure that the dip doesn’t have lumps of cream cheese in it. 

CHIP & DIP BOWL: This is the chip & dip bowl that I used!
