Ingredients in BLT Dip

If you’re looking for the perfect appetizer to take to family gatherings, potlucks, or just for hanging out at home, this recipe will have everyone coming back for more!

Cream Cheese Base Cream cheese is the base of this recipe. The addition of mayo and sour cream makes it smooth and easy to scoop.

Seasonings & Flavors – A bit of garlic powder and smoked paprika flavor this dip. Sharp cheddar and green onion (or swap ½ teaspoon of onion powder) add a boost of flavor.

Turn it into a ranch BLT dip by adding ranch dressing mix, or try Italian dressing mix or fresh herbs if you have them on hand.

Crispy Bacon I love to make bacon in the oven and keep it in the fridge or freezer.

Time-Saving Tip: Swap out the bacon for bacon bits or pre-cooked bacon.

Lettuce Iceberg or romaine lettuce are perfect choices for this recipe because they will stay crunchy.

Tomatoes Anything ripe and juicy variety of tomatoes work here. I most often use either cherry tomatoes or Romas.
