Variations

  • Bacon. You can use bacon bits instead of freshly cooked bacon if you prefer. While this is convenient, I do prefer fresh bacon in the recipe.
  • Cheese. Cheddar is our favorite with the bacon but feel free to use other varieties. Colby Jack is also delicious.
  • Spicy flavor. Mix in chopped jalapeno peppers, red pepper flakes or a dash of hot sauce in the dip.

How to make Bacon Cheddar Ranch Dip:

Bowl with sour cream and cream cheese combined with a mixer.

Step 1. Combine the softened cream cheese and sour cream in a mixing bowl. I used an electric hand mixer.

Cheese and bacon added to bowl and combined with a spoon.

Step 2. Next, add the other ingredients and stir by hand with a spoon to combine. Do not use the electric mixer for this step.
