  • Cream Cheese – this needs to be softened
  • Ranch Seasoning Mix – the dry pack of ranch
  • Real Bacon Bits – You can also cook 12 slices of bacon and crumble it.
  • Cheddar Cheese – We used sharp cheddar but mild would work as well. You could also try Colby Jack shredded cheese.
  • Sour Cream

How to make crack dip:

First, preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Second, mix together the cream cheese, ranch, bacon, sour cream and part of the cheddar cheese.

Next, put the mixture into a 8X8 baking dish. Cover with foil and bake.

During the last 5 minutes, remove the foil and top with the remaining cheddar cheese on top. Bake a few more minutes until the cheese is melted.

Finally, garnish with green onions and serve warm.

More ideas for crack dip:

  • Crockpot- You can also make this recipe in the crock pot! Just put the mixture on the bottom of the crock pot. Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours. This will vary based on your crockpot but you want to make sure the dip is heated through. When it is just about finished, add the rest of the shredded cheese on top. Put the lid back on and cook until the cheese has melted. This normally takes another 10 minutes.
  • Serve Cold – Try serving this dish cold. It is really good gold and makes for another great idea. Just mix everything together and enjoy.

Serving ideas:

  • Crackers- sesame, wheat thins, veggie, triscuits or any type you like.
  • Veggies- Cut up carrot and celery.
  • Tortilla chips or corn chips- Both of these are great options for dipping.
