Hot Bacon Cheese Dip

 Hot Bacon Cheese Dip
I've tried several appetizers before, but this one is a surefire people-pleaser. The thick dip has lots of bacon flavor and keeps my guests happily munching before dinner. I serve it with tortilla chips or sliced French bread. -Suzanne Whitaker Knoxville, Tennessee
