Bacon Corn Dip
This dip is unbelievably creamy and addicting. It’s so good, you’ll want to just skip the chips and eat this with a spoon!
If it came down to it, I could live off of this dip for the rest of my life. It’s amazingly creamy, has plenty of veggies, and best of all, it has bacon. Crisp, crunchy bacon bits sprinkled right on top. What more could you ask for?
No, but really, this dip has everything you could possibly need, using up ingredients that you probably already have on hand. Best of all, you can make this ahead of time and reheat as needed. Just be sure to put aside some extra bacon because, well, some people like myself may have a bad habit of eating those first.
Now pass me a spoon, please. The chips will just get in the way!
