cheesy bacon-jalapeño dip
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 8 oz. (1 brick) cream cheese
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup milk (I used 1%)
  • 4-5 slices freshly cooked, crispy bacon, crumbled
  • 1 tbsp. bacon drippings
  • 1 tsp. white vinegar
  • 2 jalapeños, seeded and deveined (if desired), then diced
  • Panko bread crumbs, for topping, seasoned with salt and pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together cream cheese, cheddar cheese, sour cream, milk, bacon, bacon drippings, white vinegar and jalapeños, then transfer to a small baking dish. Spread mixture out evenly in the pan.
  3. Top jalapeño dip with seasoned panko bread crumbs.
  4. Place dip in oven and bake 30 minutes. At the end of baking, if panko bread crumbs are not golden enough, turn the broiler on high and check the bread crumbs every few minutes to ensure they aren't burning.
  5. Remove dip from the oven and let cool slightly. Serve hot with tortilla chips.
