It’s the Ultimate Veggie and Cracker Dip

When I know this is in the fridge I just keep reaching in and grabbing some veggies to dive into this dip. I love everything about it. I mean with ingredients like bacon, cheddar and ranch how could you go wrong? All the best things in one incredible dip that is destined to please.

This will be a regular on my holiday menu and maybe take over that yearly holiday cheese ball tradition my mom used to have. It’s absolutely delicious and perfectly irresistible. Make it soon and enjoy!

Just fyi if you don’t like things very salt you can use low-sodium bacon or you can add a little more sour cream to balance out the salt. My family likes a bit of salt so it was perfect for us but if you don’t like much salt then adjust accordingly.Bacon Cheddar Ranch Dip | Cooking Classy
