Baked BLT Dip


BLT Dip

I stumbled across a couple of recipes for this dip on Super Bowl weekend, and being a lover of the infamous BLT, I just had to try it. I took things from both recipes I found, and combined them to make a scrumptious appetizer. I substituted Greek yogurt for sour cream to make this a tad healthier, and if you want to further reduce calories and fat content, you can cut the mayo in half to just a half of a cup, which will produce a bit thicker of a dip (but still yummy).

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. bacon, cooked, drained, crumbled & divided
  • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup light mayonnaise
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 Roma tomatoes (or 1 large regular), seeded, chopped & divided
  • 1/4 cup green onions, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded iceberg or romaine lettuce

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F degrees.
  2. Set aside ½ cup crumbled bacon.
  3. Mix mayonnaise, greek yogurt, and cream cheese in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Crumble bacon into mixture and stir.
  4. Add cheddar cheese, green onions, garlic powder, and one tomato, mix well.
  5. Spoon mixture into a shallow dish or pie pan and bake for 25-30 minutes or until bubbling.
  6. Sprinkle chopped tomatoes, remaining crumbled bacon, lettuce and green onions over hot dip.
  7. Serve immediately with your favorite crackers or chips.

The “BEST” Queso Dip


I will not claim that this is the best queso on this planet; however, I will say, that it’s out of this world! 

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican Four-Cheese mix
  • 1 1/2 tbsp mango salsa
  • 2 (heaping) tbsp cream cheese

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter.
  2. Stir in cornstarch, then sour cream.
  3. When mix becomes hot and bubbly, stir in the cheese blend, cream cheese and salsa.
  4. Continue stirring until cheeses melt and mixture thickens, about 5-10 minutes.
  5. Serve with tortilla chip or veggies.

If you want to add a little spice,  drop a couple of splashes of hot sauce in the last few minutes of cooking.
