Recipe Inspiration

I am pretty much a dip fanatic, and this Ranch Dip is by far my favorite dip I have made. I was inspired to make this recipe after doing a holiday round-up for 50 of the Best Holiday Appetizers. There were so many delicious appetizers, and I knew I would make at least 2/3 of them before Christmas.

We are obsessed with Homemade Ranch Dressing, so inspired by the classic dressing, we created the ultimate dip.

But since I am not a huge mayo fan, I wanted to play with the base of the dip to make it more suitable. So I added sour cream, and since ranch dressing is a family favorite, I threw in some ranch seasoning, and viola, we became instant addicts.

Ingredients

  • Sour cream
  • Mayonnaise – I use Best Foods with olive oil
  • Ranch salad dressing & seasoning mix packet
  • Chopped green onions
  • Grated cheddar cheese
  • Cooked and crumbled bacon or bacon bits

The bacon and the cheddar cheese add just enough saltiness to take away the tangy from the mayo and sour cream. The green onions add some depth to the flavor, and well after the first bite, I had at least eight more.

How to Make Ranch Dip

  • You can serve it immediately or chill it in the refrigerator for one to two days.

  • This Bacon Cheddar Ranch Dip also works as a fantastic spread for a sandwich or roll-up.

The first time I made this, I tried to tell my hubs to back off because we were taking it to a party and honestly, I was shocked it made it there.

I love eating it with a variety of dippers from crackers to chips and carrots. But, honestly, I can eat it by the spoonful, too!

This Bacon Cheddar Ranch Dip will quickly become your to-go-to appetizer whether it be for the holidays, football tailgating or college basketball playoffs. Enjoy friends.

    1. I used only 1/4 cup of mayo. This recipe kinda tastes like a fully loaded baked potato! And needs to be made ahead of time to allow the flavors to marry. Very good for football Sundays!!

  1. I make this but with a 24 oz sour cream & no mayo & we call it loaded potato dip. You dip it with ruffles & that’s your potato. I’ll have to try it with the mayo. But yes, you’re right, so quick & easy to throw together. Cutting up the green onions is the hardest thing to do.

    it has a very strong taste of mayo. I would recommend swapping the mayo and sour cream measurements or just use all sour cream. I also added garlic powder and additional ranch seasoning to try to mask the mayo but it still is so strong.

    Yum! This dip was so good, I had to make extra – I ate most of it before the party started. Super creamy and flavorful, and the texture is spot on. Thanks for sharing!
