I love having a few great recipes that don’t take a lot of prep time and it’s easy to have the ingredients on hand. You never know when you’re going to have company drop by unexpectedly or want a yummy weekend snack. This recipe for Bacon and Cheese Ranch Dip is one of those recipes. There are only 4 ingredients, they are all super yummy and it’s easy to have them in the pantry and refrigerator.
Making this dip is simple. All you have to do is combine a 16 oz. container of sour cream, 1 packet of dry ranch dip mix, 3 oz. of cooked bacon pieces (or you can use 3oz. of the pre-cooked bacon shown in the picture below) and 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese. Mix well, then refrigerate. I like to let it stay in the fridge for 24 hours, if possible, to let all the flavors combine. It’s perfect served with veggies, crackers or chips!
