A couple of Saturdays ago, we decided to have an impromptu football watching party. I found a few recipes that (I thought) I could make with the food I already had on hand and we were all set and ready to go. We made some yummy popcorn and dipped Rice Krispie Treats (recipes to follow soon!) and then I began on the dip. I started by pulling out the needed ingredients only to realize that I didn’t actually have many of the ingredients or the right amounts of the rest of the ingredients in my recipe. I mixed together what I had, making substitutions for everything in the recipe and hoped that it still tasted alright in the end.
Thankfully, the Warm Bacon Ranch Dip was delicious! My family and I devoured the whole pan’s worth. So, I thought you might want to know and try out this completely made up recipe. Perfect for any New Year’s Party or football watching party! I’m sure there will be a lot of football watching coming up in the next few weeks. This dip is amazing with tortilla style chips, and I personally recommend trying it with Tostitos Scoops Chips.
Warm Bacon Ranch Dip
- 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
- 8 oz. sour cream
- 1 1/2 cups Monterrey Jack cheese
- 2 1/2 Tbsp. ranch dressing mix
- 1 1/2 oz. real bacon bits
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix all the ingredients together and spread into a 8×8 inch baking dish (affiliate link). Cook for 25 minutes or until hot.
It really was so good! I think we need to make it again soon!
Also, don’t you think that chip and dip bowl is awesome! It’s called the Ooma Bowl and I bought it for my husband from Uncommon Goods for Christmas last year. It was a hit!
