But it is most popular for Christmas. So dust off that tinsel, and break out the carols! We are going to indulge in a Smokey Bacon Ranch Dip and claim it is Christmas in July!
The best thing about this recipe is that it takes very little to get a huge flavor! Plus almost all the ingredients are found together in Walmart!
Yep; just head to your nearest Dressing and condiment isle! I found three of the four ingredients all together! The Hidden Valley Ranch Dip and the Oscar Mayer Real Bacon Bits were right on top of each other!
Turn around and down a few steps in the Hispanic Foods section was the Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce! Make a quick stop in the Diary for the Chobani Greek Yogurt and you are done! Well; except for picking up the veggies, crackers and chips for dipping that is.
- 16 oz. Greek Style Sour Cream/ Chobani Greek Yogurt Plain
- 1 pkg. Hidden Valley Ranch Dip Seasoning Mix
- 2 Chipotle Peppers in adobo sauce
- 5 slices of Oscar Mayer Bacon, cooked and chopped (bacon bits)
- Remove 2 chipotle peppers from can and dice.
- In a mixing bowl blend sour cream/yogurt, ranch mix, and peppers together.
- Add bacon.
- Eat immediately or refrigerate to allow flavors to meld. Serve with chips or veggies
What I love about the Smokey Bacon Ranch Dip is just how easy it is to throw together. We all know that at Christmas time; we are far too busy to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. So having a delicious ranch dip that is extremely easy to make is crucial to your holiday festivities. And this Smokey Bacon Ranch Dip will get you singing carols in no time!
Make sure your Chipotle peppers are diced nicely, and your bacon is chopped into bits. If you prefer fresh bacon; you can always use Oscar Mayer bacon strips, cook them and then chop them yourself. If you are in a hurry; the Oscar Mayer Real Bacon Bits are perfect for a speedy recipe!
Then mix all but the bacon together in a bowl.
Then gently fold in the bacon bits. You can chill and let the flavors blend or serve immediately. But if you have time; chilling definitely brings out the flavor more!
Then serve with chips, veggies or even crackers. You can even alter the recipe by throwing in some shredded sharp cheddar cheese! Let me tell you; that is delicious!
As long as you have the ingredients; this is a quick turn around for your Christmas In July party, or just when you have surprise guests that you need to entertain! Because everyone loves dip! This will keep you out of the kitchen and in with the party; which is how it should be around the holidays!
