Bacon Cheese Dip

Of all the things that will be on our Super Bowl Party table from the chicken wings to the hot dogs to the jalapeno bites, I must say that the thing I am looking forward too the most is the dips. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love dips. Whether creamy, spicy, hot or cold, you will generally find me standing directly in front of them with chip in hand ready to scoop up all of the goodness. This love of dips means that I could not possibly let Super Bowl week pass without sharing a dip recipe with you. So I present to you this Bacon Cheese dip with cream cheese, cheddar cheese, bacon, sour cream and green onions.

I must warn you: this dip is thick. Really thick. I actually considered calling it a spread at one point. But after trying it with potato chips I realized that it pairs really well them. So find some thick cut potato chips, allow the dip to come to room temperature and dip away. If potato chips aren’t your thing, you could spread this on crackers or even more Super Bowl Snack-ish, potato skins.

    That doesn’t look like a dip. That looks more like a spread to me.

    I’ve been making this dip for years! I always put it in a bread bowl and bake it for an hour so the cheese gets all gooey and delicious. I haven’t added horseradish to mine, but will probably start ^_^

    Sounds yummy! I’m a big fan of dips too and just made a bacon dip myself. I’ll have to try your version soon! Love the addition of horseradish!

    This looks TASTY!!! I will be making it today to take to a bridal shower planning “party.” It has 4 of my favorite things… bacon, cheddar, sour cream and cream cheese! If we could figure out how to incorporate chocolate without it being gross, I would never eat anything else!
