Formerly known as 'Neiman Marcus dip,' this million dollar dip tastes just like it sounds. I've had more than a few cheesy dips in my day, but this is by far the richest and most addictive one yet. And it's much cheaper than the name suggests! Served with crackers and garnished with green onions and bacon, this dip is sure to be a huge hit at your next party.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Toast almonds in a saucepan over medium heat until lightly golden.

  • Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until crispy and evenly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and cool slightly before chopping into bits.

  • Combine mayonnaise and Cheddar cheese in a mixing bowl. Toss in bacon, green onions, almonds, and cayenne. Stir with a spatula until combined. Wrap and chill in the fridge at least 1 hour before transferring to a serving bowl.

Chef's Note:

Use a sharp knife for the green onions so they taste better. This is because if you use a dull knife on onions, you'll be crushing instead of cutting, which releases volatile sulfuric compounds and makes the flavor much harsher.
