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.
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.
