Cheddar-Bacon Dip

Both children and adults enjoy this dip. I like it, too—it's so quick and easy to prepare. I make it for special occasions…birthdays, Christmas parties and more. —Carol Werkman, Neerlandia, Alberta

    We lived this dip! We will be making it again soon for football viewing parties! Very hearty and satisfying . Great with veggie chips too!

    I love this dip! It is a hit with men as well as women which is not always true of cream cheese based dips. Also the absence of lettuce means leftovers keep well for at least 2 days. I use Peach Mango Salsa in place of the tomatoes, green pepper and taco sauce. It works great and is much easier. Half a recipe is enough for 6-10 appetizer servings when served with multigrain Scoops taco chips.

    I made this for a holiday party and was asked for the recipe several times. I added black olives to the vegetable layer too.

    This dip has become a favorite both at home and the office. This dip trumps taco dip, any day of the week. Co-workers request I prepare this for any and every event that we have. Very easy to make and real bacon is absolutely a must! :-)

    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.
