BLT Dip Ingredients

BLT Dip raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 2 (8-ounce) packages of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sour cream 
  • 1 cup mayonnaise (your favorite brand)
  • 1 (1-ounce) packet of dry ranch dressing mix
  • 2½ tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
  • 1½ pounds smoked bacon, cooked and crumbled (reserve ½ cup for topping)
  • 2 cups shredded Colby and Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1½ cups shredded lettuce (topping)
  • ¾ cup diced Roma tomatoes (topping)

PRO TIP:

Roma tomatoes are less juicy, and therefore your dip won’t become too soggy.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

SOUR CREAM: You can substitute plain Greek yogurt for sour cream in this simple recipe.

SPICY: You can add hot sauce to the cream cheese mixture for a spicy version of this delicious dip.

CHEESE: You can substitute shredded pepper jack cheese or plain shredded cheddar cheese in this party dip. 

How to Make This BLT Dip Recipe

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

This dip can be made ahead of time and kept in the fridge to allow all the flavors to mingle. We would recommend waiting to add the diced tomatoes and lettuce until right before you are ready to serve, though.

STEP ONE: Using either a stand mixer or a medium-sized mixing bowl and a handheld mixer on medium-high speed, beat together the softened cream cheese, sour cream, and mayonnaise for 1½ to 2 minutes until smooth.

PRO TIP:

Make sure your cream cheese is at room temperature so that you don’t have any lumps in your cream cheese base.

STEP TWO: Add the ranch seasoning mix, Dijon mustard, onion powder, kosher salt, and black pepper. Mix until well combined.

Storage

IN THE FRIDGE: Store any leftovers of this creamy dip covered or in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

IN THE FREEZER: Because this dip contains cream cheese, sour cream, and mayonnaise, it is best to use it fresh and not freeze it, or it may become watery once thawed.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I make this dip ahead of time?

This easy recipe can be made a day ahead of time. The longer it stays in the fridge, the more flavorful the dip will become.

Can I freeze this dip?

This cold BLT dip would not freeze well as the cream cheese, mayo, and sour cream would become watery once thawed.

Can I add other veggies to this dip?

The sky’s the limit as to what you can add to your BLT dip with cream cheese. Green peppers and green onions are two more great options for this dip.
