Especially great dips are ultra-creamy, loaded with flavor, and also come together ultra-easy.  And this Bacon-Cheddar Ranch Dip?  It's got us covered on all three of these fronts -- super creamy, loaded with fabulous flavor, and it's super easy to make.

Bacon-Cheddar Ranch Dip Ingredients:

It takes just 6 simple ingredients to whip up a batch of this Bacon-Cheddar Ranch Dip.  You'll need:

  • Mayonnaise & sour cream - Form the creamy base of the dip.

  • Ranch dip mix - Dry Ranch dip mix creates the dip's signature Ranch flavor.  Look for it in an envelope in the salad dressing section of the grocery store.

  • Bacon - Using packaged real bacon pieces makes this dip super quick and easy to mix up.  Look for real bacon pieces in the salad dressing section of the grocery store, alongside salad bacon bites. Or if you prefer, use crumbled crispy bacon that you fry up yourself.

  • Cheddar cheese - Use medium cheddar you shred yourself (instead of packaged pre-shredded cheese) for the best texture and flavor.

  • Green onion - Adds a nice zip of flavor that nicely compliments the Ranch, bacon, and cheddar.

How to Make Bacon-Cheddar Ranch Dip:

For the best texture and flavor, be sure to use cheese you shred yourself from a block, rather than packaged pre-shredded cheese.  Pre-shredded cheese can be kind of dry.

Refrigerate the dip for at least 1 hour to allow the flavors to meld.

At serving time, garnish with additional bacon, shredded cheese, and green onion, if desired. Then serve it up with potato chips or vegetables for dipping.
