HOW TO: Easy Bacon Cheddar Dip

Take your dip game to a new level.

Whether you’re getting together with friends, bringing something to the office or just watching your favorite sports team, this easy bacon cheddar dip is a must-have. We brought Lee Ann Miller from Walnut Creek into the kitchen to teach us how to make it. Enjoy!

Easy Bacon Cheddar Dip


  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 5 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 4 Roma tomatoes, diced.
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 16 oz taco sauce
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 lb smoked bacon (2 lbs if this is your main dish)


  • Cut up your bacon into small, thin slices and fry in a skillet. Drain onto a paper towel.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and sour cream.
  • Spread on a 12 inch glass plate. Stay about a ½ inch away from the edges of the dish.
  • Combine onions, tomatoes, and green peppers in a bowl and drain all the juice out.
  • Sprinkle over the cream cheese layer.
  • Pour taco sauce over the vegetables.
  • Sprinkle with cheddar cheese, starting around the outside edge and working toward the center so the taco sauce doesn’t run over the edge.
  • Sprinkle your bacon on top and serve with tortilla chips.
