Bacon and Cheddar Dip


Bacon and Cheddar Dip
(makes about 2 cups)
(from Rick Rodgers' "Dip It!")

Ingredients:

3/4 cup softened cream cheese
1 cup sour cream
6 slices cooked bacon
1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
Handful of chopped chives

Directions:

1. Blend the cream cheese and sour cream together with a hand blender until smooth.

2. Mix in the bacon, Cheddar and chives.

3. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.



Variations:

- The original recipe called for 1 cup of mayo but we are trying not to eat that now so I switched it up and added cream cheese instead of mayo. The dip I made was very thick, so you may need to add more sour cream to thin it out - depending on how you like it.

- At Christmas I ran out of cream cheese, so I used 1 1/2 cups of sour cream instead - tasted just as good!!
