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

"Look at any pkg. of shredded cheese. YES, 4 cups of shredded is 16 ounces, just as noted in the recipe. Shredded measures up differently, but it is the same on all pkgs./brands of shredded cheeses. READ the packages....."

"The ones who wrote a review about the cheese. I currently have a pack of cheese in my hand and 2 cups of cheese equals 8 ounces. Four cups is 16 ounces."

"Dry ingredients measure differently than wet ingredients. A packet of cheese that says 16 oz. is 2 cups. Please look at the packet when you are in the store."

"After reading over the reviews and the recipe i wonder how 4 cups of cheese is 16 ounces? shouldn't it be either 2 cups which is 16 ounces or 4 cups which is 32 ounces.... makes sense why it would be too cheesy!"
