  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (8 oz)
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped cooked bacon (6 slices)
  • Sliced green onions, if desired

Steps

    Stir in bacon. If desired, top with extra shredded cheese and sliced green onions to serve.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Crack dip is loaded with all the flavors you can’t stop eating: sour cream, dill and buttermilk-spiked Ranch seasoning, green onions and crumbled bacon. Dip in off-the-shelf veggie chips or spread on toasted baguette slices.
  • tip 2
    Save time with pre-cooked slices of bacon that are reheated in the microwave just until crisp. Chop or crumble into small bits, then mix into your Ranch Crack Dip.
  • tip 3
    Make this easy cream cheese dip by using a Cheddar cheese with some personality, like a sharp Cheddar. Smoked Gouda, dilled Havarti and crumbled blue cheese are other bold-flavored varieties you can play with as well.
