The flavors of a bacon cheeseburger combine to make this hearty and easy to put together dip that feeds a big crowd! If the dip becomes too thick, thin with small amounts of milk to desired consistency. Serve warm with tortilla chips, bagel chips, or corn chip scoops.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place the bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Remove bacon to a plate lined with a paper towel, retaining drippings in the skillet.

  • Break ground beef in pieces and add to drippings in the skillet. Cook and stir beef until completely browned, 7 to 10 minutes; drain in a colander. Rinse beef with water to wash away excess fat; drain. Transfer drained beef to a bowl. Stir pickle juice into the beef; season with salt and pepper.

  • Combine ground beef mixture, American cheese, cream cheese, diced tomatoes with green chile peppers, green onions, ketchup, Dijon mustard, and cayenne pepper in a slow cooker.

  • Cook cheese mixture on Low, stirring occasionally, until the cheese is melted completely, about 1 hour. Crumble bacon over the surface of the dip to serve.

Made as written except that I left out the salt. The American cheese is plenty salty enough. I also didn't place the beef in a bowl after it was drained but stuck in right in the slow cooker because I didn't see the need to dirty up another bowl. I loved the idea of pickle juice but you really need to add more than 2 tablespoons if you want to taste it. This is a good dip and one that can easily be tweaked to your individual tastes. I'm confident this one would be a huge hit at any football party. Read More

Turn out Great, served at a party and there was none left. Will be using this recipe for a Bacon contest...However I will use scallions or white onions for more seasoning. I also added about 1/2 cup of chicken broth to make it creamier...Yummy Read More
