Ingredients in BLT Dip

If you’re looking for the perfect appetizer, this BLT Dip recipe will have everyone coming back for more!

  • Creamy Base Cream cheese is the base of this recipe, light cream cheese can be used. Mayo and sour cream make 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.
  • Crispy Bacon Prepace bacon in the oven and crumble it or save time with real bacon bits. If using real bacon bits, fry or microwave them until crisp and let them cool.
  • Lettuce Iceberg or romaine lettuce add a fresh crunch.
  • Tomatoes Any ripe and juicy variety of tomatoes works here. I most often use either cherry tomatoes or Roma tomatoes.

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