Use regular bacon, crisply cooked and chopped, in place of the peppered smoked bacon.
Use precooked bacon slices found in the deli section of the supermarket. There's no need to cook; just chop and stir into the mixture.
Serve dip with soft breadsticks, cut-up bagels or fresh vegetables such as carrot sticks or cherry tomatoes.
