Microwave bacon according to package directions until crisp; drain on paper towels. Cool 10 minutes; crumble. Stir together bacon and next 4 ingredients. Cover and chill 1 to 24 hours before serving. Garnish, if desired. Serve with crispy, warm waffle fries. Store leftovers in refrigerator up to 7 days.
Note: We tested with Oscar Mayer Fully Cooked Bacon.
Made this for a crowd and served it with little mini roasted potatoes. I added a cup of prepared buttermilk ranch dressing along with a half package of dry ranch dressing mix to add more flavor and thin it out a bit. Also doubled the bacon (isn't everything better with more bacon?) It was an incredibly popular appetizer!
I forgot to add the hot sauce in this recipe, but it was still great. I do believe though that the sour cream needs to be cut with something else, it was a bit strong. A great change for sure. I think the next time I make it, I will try to make it with some cream cheese so I can heat it up and then add in the sour cream last once it's cooled a bit. I also thought it needed more onion flavor, so I added some grated onion. Still, it was great and I will make it again!
I just made this, and haven't brought it to the party yet, but it tasted good to me! If you don't think it has enough flavor ( I didn't when made according to recipe), add a whole 16 oz. of bacon, extra hot sauce, green onion (instead of chives), and black pepper. I can't wait to share it with my friends!
Very easy to make and pretty tasty. I made this for a bunch of teenage boys watching the Super Bowl and they all loved it. I agree with the previous review to serve it at room temperature because it's pretty thick. The longer it sits, the better the flavors meld together. I would definitely make this again!
My family and I really enjoy this dip. We've had it with waffle fries and also with potato chips. I have also made it with green onions and with chives. We like it either way. I have not tried ranch dip; I think the dip tastes great as is.
