Bacon Cheddar Cream Cheese Dip (Easy Recipe)

By  | 

I stole this bacon cheddar cream cheese dip recipe from my sister in law

She first made this hot cream cheese dip for us last Christmas. From the time she pulled it out of the oven till the time the family’s crackers had cleaned out the bowl, I believe four minutes elapsed.

It is beyond delicious. I’ve also heard it called crack dip in some families. We’ve made this cream cheese dip many times since and every time it has been a huge hit.

It goes great at parties served alongside beer cheese dip and our little smokies.

It’s simple, easy, fast and delicious. My sister-in-law calls this Hot and Dirty Dip. I’ve heard others call this kind of dip, Crack Dip.

Whatever you call it, everyone will love it. PROMISE.

If you’re short on time, you will also love this buffalo chicken dip or this easy cheese dip recipe.

I am a bona fide foodie. I like reading recipe books, looking at pictures of food, and making up my own creations. I love eating fresh foods and unusual combinations.

I also love to prepare and share new dishes with friends. The trouble is, life is busy and it doesn’t happen as often as I’d like.

So, whenever I find ways to streamline everyday tasks, I’m all for it. It ups the chance of more time for what is most important—like having friends over!

You know all those bacon cheddar cream cheese dip recipes you drool over and save to Pinterest? Now you can make it!

This recipe is a crowd pleaser at our house, although we always call it the “hot dirty dip”. It’s one of my sis-in-law’s “famous” creations that we all crave.

Hot dirty dip is great for impromptu get-togethers because it’s so quick and easy to put together. It’s also a terrific addition for hungry football fans who like to nosh their way through the game.

We’ve also served this cold crab dip recipe as well as this classic spinach and artichoke dip— and our company has loved both!

Add this recipe to your party arsenal —  guaranteed drool-worthy!

      Must this Dip be warm when it’s eaten or can it be eaten cold?
