Another day of blogging?! Holy Shnikes! It’s my favorite day coming up soon and I want to share some yums with you! Original “Licious Food” yums.
My favorite day (ok, one of my many fave days) – Superbowl Sunday, is a day that I will have to work but hopefully you won’t.
I love the Superbowl simply for the parties and usually the half time show. That’s right, I’m here for the food -whoop whoop!
Can you tell I was never sports oriented? I was that girl/kid that was always picked last for EVERYTHING. I excel better at solo types of sports, just a fact, although I was pretty bad ass at volleyball.
So let me tell you about this dip. It’s the jam. It’s like a loaded baked potato without the potato — that’s why potato chips were invented.
Why is sour cream, cream cheese, bacon, and cheese so magical? I guess it’s one of life’s mysteries.
To get the full impact be sure to make this dip at least a day ahead. The flavors need to meld together.
I bet you can’t have just one chip? ;)
Until Next Time,

“Hail Mary” Bacon Cheese Dip
“A Licious Food Original Recipe”
4 oz cheese, extra sharp and crumbled
8 oz sour cream, light
3 oz Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 c bacon crumbles
1 t. bacon rendering (grease)
1/2 t. garlic powder
1t. dried parsley
1/2t. black pepper
1/2t. ranch powder
pinch of cayenne pepper
The great thing about this dip is that I used my food processor/Ninja to make this particular yum.
Slice bacon into pieces (About 4 to 5 slices) and cook/bake in the oven or atop your stove. Cook bacon to nice and crispy and let cool. Reserve 1 teaspoon of baking grease.
In your food processor/Ninja take the 4 ounces of cheese, cut them into 1/2 inch slices, insert into your processor. You will be using your blades to crumble the cheese. Should resemble crumbles, no one crumb will look the same. Remove the cheese crumbles from the processor into a large bowl.
Next add the sour cream, cream cheese, bacon rendering, and spices into the food processor. Pulse until incorporated, no cream cheese lumps. It might look soupy however when refrigerated it will firm up again.
Pour mixture into the large bowl that contains the cheese crumbles and add the cooled bacon pieces. Fold the cheese and bacon into the sour cream mixture. Cover and Refrigerate for at least 3 hours, however if you can prepare this dip a day ahead then all the better. Let those flavors meld!
Serve with your favorite potato chip (That would be Utz’s Kettle Classics Dark Russet Kettle Chips for me)!
Makes Approximately: 1 and 1/2 cups.
