I made this dip for my husband's birthday party and everyone loved it. Had lots of requests for the recipe. Thanks for sharing.

Made this for my 4th July party and the pan was scraped clean! Best dip and so easy too. Followed the recipe but used a jar of roasted garlic salsa instead of taco sauce. This will be made many more times, we all loved it! I would have to say that using real bacon in this recipe is a must- no canned bacon bits.

Looks great, but how does it hold up if you refrigerate leftovers? Now that it's just the 2 of us, I like things that will hold over.
