It is Super Bowl week and that means we need some good snacks to go with the game. Chicken wings, nachos, pizza, and chili are always a hit. One other appetizer I love to have while watching some football is a dip. This bacon cheddar dip is perfect for any Super Bowl party.

Dips are an essential part of any party snack menu for me. This dip is creamy and cheesy with some serious kick from the chipotle peppers. I used canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, and depending on your preference for heat, you can increase or decrease the amount of peppers and tablespoons of the adobo sauce. I used 2 peppers and 2 tablespoons of the sauce, and while it did give a decent amount of heat, everyone in the family was still able to eat the dip.

With the mindset that everything is better with bacon, I cooked 10 bacon strips and then crumbled them to mix into the dip. Along with the bacon, I also added some sliced green onions which gives some nice zing and added texture to the dip.

Warm or Cold!

This is a dip that tastes great both hot or cold. Either way works

  • If you plan to serve this cheddar cheese dip cold, then once you mix the ingredients together, store it in a sealed container in the fridge. Then, spoon it into a bowl when it is time to serve.
  • For a warm dip, all you need to do is spoon the dip into an oven safe bowl and heat in a 325F oven until warm. Stir it a couple of times while it is in the oven to mix up the melted cheese.

Serve both the cold or warm dip next to a bowl of crackers, toasted baguettes, tortilla chips or something else for scooping. Be prepared, this dip will get gobbled up very quickly!
