Cheddar Bacon Dip

Hi everyone!  It's been awhile since I've shared a recipe with you so I thought I would share this recipe that my daughter tried and she and her friends just went wild for it!  It is so easy as you can see by the picture above, just four ingredients and 24 hours and you have delicious dip!
First put your sour cream in the fanciest dish you can find, hey people this is how regular, everyday people cook in my house, lol!  Now dump in the Ranch dressing mix and mix well.
Now open your package of bacon bits and add to your sour cream and Ranch dressing mixture, mix it up some.
I decided to go fancy with this recipe and bought a block of Cheddar cheese and use my flat grater to shredded my cheese with.
Ok, here is the finished dip, nothing really fancy to look at but it is very good to eat!  Serve with chips and vegetables.

Cheddar Bacon Dip

16 ounces sour cream
1 packet Ranch dressing mix
3 ounces bacon bits (in a bag, not jar)
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Mix together and refrigerate 24 hours.  Serve with chips and/or vegetables.  Refrigerate any left-overs.

I  found the recipe on Plain Chicken HERE.

Well I hope you all are staying cool and I hope you have a safe, fun fourth of July too!     Mary
