Ingredients in BLT Dip

If you’re looking for the perfect appetizer, this BLT Dip recipe will have everyone coming back for more!

  • Creamy Base Cream cheese is the base of this recipe, light cream cheese can be used. Mayo and sour cream make it smooth and easy to scoop.
  • Seasonings & Flavors – A bit of garlic powder and smoked paprika flavor this dip. Sharp cheddar and green onion (or swap ½ teaspoon of onion powder) add a boost of flavor.
  • Crispy Bacon Pre-bake bacon in the oven and crumble it or save time with real bacon bits. If using real bacon bits, fry or microwave them until crisp and let them cool.
  • Lettuce Iceberg or romaine lettuce add a fresh crunch.
  • Tomatoes Any ripe and juicy variety of tomatoes works here. I most often use either cherry tomatoes or Roma tomatoes.

Variations – Turn it into a ranch BLT dip by adding ranch dressing mix, or try Italian dressing mix and fresh herbs if you have them on hand.

  1. This recipe is a winner! Sooo good. I let the cream cheese come to room temp so I didn’t have to use a mixer. Everyone enjoyed it.

    1. Hi Kruptyna, we actually mix it all into the dip itself and you can either set some aside or grate a little extra to sprinkle on top for garnish. Enjoy!

      1. I think Kruptyna was referring to the lettuce, not the cheese. I have the same question about the lettuce. Three cups seem to be a lot and the pictures don’t seem to have that much lettuce.

      2. Hi Terri, the recipe calls for 3 cups but you can use however much you prefer! We would love to hear how it turns out for you!

      3. number 4 in the instructions say to top with lettuce. so we are to put 3 cups of lettuce on top of the mixture? the photo does not reflect that amount of.lettuce on the mixture.
