Crack Dip

Crack Dip is an amazing dip, great for parties or game day! With a creamy cheesy base and loads of bacon and cheddar, it’s seasoned with ranch seasoning mix for a crowd pleasing favorite!

Just like jalapeño popper dip or buffalo chicken dip, this dip is sure to be a crowd favorite!

What is Crack Dip?

I have to tell you, I did not name this dip but I do love to make it! Crack Dip is easy, cheesy and full of bacon-y goodness.

Cream cheese, sour cream and mayo make the base oh-so-creamy and it’s flavored with ranch dressing mix (I make homemade). Add in crumbled bacon (or bacon bits), cheddar and green onions.

Variations

Spicy Add in a handful of diced jalapenos or a splash or two of hot sauce.

Meaty Add chicken or sausage

Seasonings Swap out the ranch mix for Italian dressing mix or your favorite fresh herbs

Bake It Serve it cold or bake this dip in a 400°F oven for 20 minutes or until hot and bubbly.

How to Make Crack Dip

This is so easy it’s ready in just 2 simple steps!

  1. Mix the first 5 ingredients together with an electric mixer. If you are mixing by hand, make sure the ingredients are at room temperature. This makes them easier to mix, just be sure to refrigerate before serving.
  2. Gently fold in the remaining ingredients and refrigerate at least one hour before serving.

Best Dippers for Crack Dip

Here is a list of my favorite dippers for this cheesy crack dip!

  • Crackers: Any kind of buttery-flavored crackers, Triscuits, or slices of toasted baguettes.
  • Chips: Any kind of tortilla or potato chip.
  • Veggies: Celery sticks, carrot stick, or cucumber slices. Try filling mushroom caps and heating with a little parmesan cheese melted on top.
