What can I say about this dip? You have to make it. One of my close girlfriends Becky (she is a new mom! so exciting!) makes this dip all the time, hence the title of this post. It’s so good! The perfect blend of cheeses and you can add any combination of extras you want (I’ll add my favourites below). This dip best served warm with pita bread or pita chips. Crackers & vegetables also work. Make this dip!
1 brick cream cheese at room temperature (I use light)
1 ½ cups shredded cheese (use cheddar, mozzarella or a combination of the two)
1/3 cup mayo (again, I use light)
About half a red pepper, chopped
Clove of garlic
Saute bacon bits (use your judgement on how many you want), garlic and chopped red pepper. Mix the cheeses and mayo, and add in the sauteed items along with chopped green onions (again, use your judgement). Bake at 350 until bubbly, about 20 minutes.
The dip also works well as stated above but without the red pepper, or without the bacon (I’ve made it this way lots of times to be vegetarian friendly). You can also skip the red pepper & green onions and use sauteed spinach instead – or try flavoured cream cheese! So many combinations and every one that I’ve tried works. Happy cooking!
