This dip is similar to other bacon and Cheddar dips, but with a cool, creamy kick! Enjoy it with tortilla chips, celery sticks or rice cakes, or use it as a sandwich spread.

I used "real" crumbled bacon which I highly recommend if your store carries it pre packaged, also added one bunch chopped green onions, and made the day before. Served with potato chips. I have never seen a dip inhaled like this. I really wished I had doubled the recipe. Will make every time from now on. Thanks for a keeper! Read More

I don't know why this is in the top ten. I made it for a group of 15 and no one liked it! Read More

This is great the bacon and cheese really add an extra depth to the ranch dip. I did use real bacon rather than bacon bits so I suspect that helped where some reviewers complained about there being too much. Read More

I brought this dip for Thanksgiving at my sisters. It was a huge hit! Everyone loved it! They scraped the bowl clean. I didn't use the bacon bits instead I fried 2 strips of bacon and crumbled it into the dip. I will definitely make this dip again! Thanks for sharing! It is now a family favorite! It was simple to make and delicious to eat. Served it with carrots celery red bell peppers and potato chips. Very yummy with the chips! Read More

EXCELLENT! I made it for a cookout at our home and the family loved it. The only change I did was use a about 1/2 a can of the Bacon Bits. It was delicious! Great dip! Read More

I made this for a party and I thought it was wonderful. I served cheddar pretzels for dipping and it was a great combination. I did cut back on the amount of bacon bits as I thought the amount called for would be overpowering. I halved it and thought the dip was great. I'll make this again and again--it's so simple and easy. Read More

This is a great tasting dip. I am not a huge ranch fan but it really is a good dip. I made it for my son's 2nd birthday party this past weekend and I got several requests for the recipe. I did lay off on the bacon a bit and only used about 1.5 ounces. This is a keeper! Read More

I really like this recipe. It is quick and easy but looks like you put a ton of effort in. I used real bacon and added some chopped green onion. I reserved some of the cheese bacon and green onion to pile on the top for garnish and would recommend doing that as it made it look really nice like a loaded baked potato. I'll definitely be making this again for a quick and easy addition to any party. Read More
